Newly-promoted Wolves are in a transfer tussle with Newcastle United over the signing of Juventus holding midfielder Stefano Sturaro, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The Birmingham Mail report that Cristiano Ronaldo’s bumper transfer to the Italian champions has necessitated some outgoings and that Sturaro is one player who would be allowed to leave in order to raise cash.
They claim that the player’s preference is to join the Magpies but Nuno Santo will hope to convince the midfielder to join his Molineux revolution ahead of Wolves’ return to the top flight.
They report also states that Southampton are in the hunt for the Italian international.
Romain Saiss performed admirably alongside Ruben Neves in Wolves’ 3-4-2-1 formation in the Championship last season but the Sturaro’s experience with Juventus puts him on another level.
Also, he would provide Santo with the option to beef up his midfield with two conservative holding midfielders, which would allow Neves even more creative freedom to roam ahead of them and make a real impression on the Premier League.
Wolves may need more tactical flexibility and the ability to introduce a player of Sturaro’s quality can only improve Neves as he looks to show his Champions League class in the top flight.
