The 25-year-old Italy international is expected to leave Turin this summer
West Ham and Wolves are battling it out to sign Italy international Stefano Sturaro this summer, according to reports.
Sturaro, the midfielder, has spent the last three-and-a-half years at Juventus, though he has struggled to establish himself as anything other than a bit-part player in Turin.
The 25-year-old is expected to leave Juve this summer to kick-start his career, and there has been a wealth of interest in him from across Europe.
A host of Premier League clubs have been tracking Sturaro, including Leicester and Newcastle, but it is two of their top flight rivals who are leading the race for the former Genoa ace.
According to Tuttosport, West Ham and Wolves are ‘competing to sign’ Sturaro, having upped their efforts to buy a player who is said to have previously been approached by Crystal Palace, as well as the aforementioned Leicester and Newcastle.
Juve are believed to be looking to receive around £18million (€20m) for Sturaro, and this high asking price has raised doubts about the midfielder’s summer destination.
