Liverpool and Arsenal could be set to battle it out for the signature of Argentine winger Juan Iturbe, according to The Express.

The 21-year-old, who was only signed on a permanent basis by Hellas Verona in May, could already be heading out of the exit door after his club revealed that they will listen to offers for his services. 

Director Sean Sogliano has admitted that the club will let the player depart the club if they receive the right offer. 

Speaking to reporters, Sogliano said: "We all know that Iturbe is a special player.

"We cannot hide the fact he is at the centre of important negotiations.

"He is aware of what the situation is, there are possibilities that he will join a big club.

"Even though all the focus is on him, he is calm and aware that he could have the opportunity of his life.

"He knows that if an offer that we consider fair arrives then he will leave."

Sogliano's comments are certainly expected to alert both Arsenal and Liverpool, who could be set to make a bid for the youngster in the near future. 

If reports are to be believed, the Serie A outfit have valued the Argentine at £24 million - which is £11.5m more than what they just paid for him. 

It appears that the club signed the star in order to make a very quick profit, meaning Liverpool and Arsenal have a great chance of landing him. 

Both clubs will be looking to improve their squads ahead of the 2014/15 season, as they embark on a title challenge and European campaign. 

The Gunners will certainly be hoping to push on following their FA Cup victory, meanwhile Brendan Rodgers' side will be looking to go one better in the league after a second placed finish last term.
