Roma, Watford in advanced negotiations for Juan Iturbe

Sky Sport: Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has reported this afternoon that Roma and Watford are in advanced negotiations for attacker Juan Iturbe.

Reportedly, after finding little space under Rudi Garcia this season, Juan Iturbe is ready to say ‘goodbye’ to Trigoria and greet the Premier League. After unsuccessful loan attempts from Genoa and Bologna for the player’s services, it appears the Argentine is approaching a potential move to Watford. The two sides are in advanced negotiations for the outright sale of the player, whose adventure in the Italian capital is coming close to an end.
