According to Calciomercato, Newcastle United are interested in signing Juventus midfielder Stefano Sturaro during this summer’s transfer window.
Indeed, it is being reported that the Magpies have already approached Juventus to enquire whether the four-time international would be available this summer.
Sturaro, who has also previously been linked with Genoa and Valencia, made 19 appearances for his Italian club in all competitions during the 2017-18 campaign.
The 25-year-old has actually been with Juventus since 2014 – winning four Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia crowns with the Italian giants.
The midfielder has largely struggled to hold down a regular position in Turin, however, and it is thought that he could leave the club in this summer’s transfer window.
Newcastle are the latest side to be linked with the Italian, and the English team’s supporters have been reacting to the transfer speculation.
There are fans in favour of the deal occurring, but many are finding it difficult to believe.
