If the Italian media over the past month or so are to be believed, then Stefano Sturaro won’t be a Juventus player beyond this summer, with a move to the Premier League the likeliest avenue.

The last update regarding the 25-year-old came from Corriere della Serra earlier this week, who seemed to suggest that Leicester were the ones closest to signing the midfielder.

Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday, however, don’t have the Foxes in their list, claiming both West Ham and Newcastle are best placed to acquire Sturaro’s services.

They explain the Juventus player ‘speaks English more and more’, revealing both the Hammers and the Magpies are ‘in pole’.

As things stand, and this has been the only constant in this entire saga, if you want to call it that, the Serie A champions are asking for €20m.

Below that, there’s little chance they’ll be interested in what suitors will have to say, so it seems both Manuel Pellegrini and Rafa Benitez have been warned if they want to add Sturaro to their midfield for the 2018-19 season.
