According to Tribal Football, Stefano Stuararo’s agent has revealed that the midfielder might be on his way out of Juventus in January. A number of offers had come in from clubs like Everton, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Napoli in the summer but Sturaro was not interested in a move then.
Sturaro has made just seven appearances so far this campaign for the Old Lady, who currently find themselves two points off leading Scudetto chasers Napoli at the top of the league. Juventus do, however, have the chance to continue to pile the pressure on Gli Azzurri when they face AS Roma at the Juventus Stadium on the weekend.
With the likes of Sami Khedira, Blaise Matuidi and Miralem Pjanic well cemented into the first team squad, it has been hard for Sturaro to find a whole lot of game time. As per the words of his agent, Carlo Volpi, Juventus has a strong enough midfield to challenge for the Champions League as well as domestic competitions while already a favourite to win their 7th Serie A title.
After hearing the statements of Volpi, clubs might reignite their interest in the 24-year-old with the best offer coming from Valencia. A loan deal to the Spanish side for the remainder of the season is a far better deal than a complete transfer as Juventus might be reluctant to let go of the youngster.
Everton manager Sam Allardyce is primarily looking for a striker in January and not a midfielder. After the summer signing of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Davy Klassen, the Toffees are heavily stacked in the midfield position. Sturaro’s addition to the squad might come at a cost of at least one player making an exit. If nobody does make their way out of the club, it would be hard for the Italian to get regular minutes on the pitch.
Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has revealed that he will be looking for quality additions to his squad to save the team’s failing campaign. Currently, in the relegation zone with 15 points, Benitez has no desire to return to the EFL Championship right after playing one season in the first tier of English football. His attacking lineup primarily consists of their top scorer Dwight Gayle and Joselu who mostly are ineffective without quality service in a game. Sturaro’s addition can help provide that and make an impact for the Magpies.
Although multiple clubs from all over Europe might be interested in the Sanremo-bord midfielder’s services, a move to the Premier League might not be the right move for Sturaro as most of the clubs vying for his services cannot provide him with the chance to play in the Champions League football.
