Iturbe lands at Hellas Verona on loan

Verona, Italy (Sports Network) - Hellas Verona has added forward Juan Iturbe from FC Porto in a season-long loan move, with the Italian club having the option to make the deal permanent after the season.

Iturbe spent time on loan in his native Argentina with River Plate earlier this year, and his arrival will help to boost the attacking options for Hellas, which is playing in its first season in Serie A in 11 years.

The 20-year-old has represented both Paraguay and Argentina at the youth levels, but appears to have settled on Argentina when it comes to his senior international choice.
