Roma winger Juan Iturbe could be set for a switch to Malaga in the close season.
The 22-year-old has been on loan at Bournemouth since January but has struggled to cement a place in Eddie Howe´s side, appearing just twice for the Cherries.
However, the Buenos Aires-born player could be offered a chance to kick-start his career in La Liga, with Malaga monitoring his situation.
Reports in Italy claim Roma director of football Walter Sabatini wants the player to return to the Giallorossi, but boss Luciano Spalletti is not convinced Iturbe will fit into his plans for next season.
The Costa del Sol outfit are understood to have wanted to take him on loan in the last transfer window, but eventually lost out to the Premier League club.
Nonetheless, they are now looking to take Iturbe on loan with a view to a permanent deal at the end of next season should the arrangement prove successful.
Although born in Argentina, the youngster was raised in Paraguay and has two caps for Los Guaranies, while he is likely to feature for them in this summer´s Copa America.
