'Now we're talking': Some Wolves fans dreaming of Stefano Sturaro swoop

Wolves fans celebrate during the Sky Bet Championship match between Derby County and Wolverhampton at iPro Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Derby, England.

Juventus's Stefano Sturaro has been linked with a big move to Premier League newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Stefano Sturaro of Juventus looks on during the UEFA Champions League match between Sevilla FC and Juventus at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on November 22, 2016 in Seville, Spain.

The big names just keep on being linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Since their promotion back to the Premier League, Wolves have landed both Raul Jimenez and Rui Patricio, two players with 137 caps between them for Mexico and Portugal not to mention vast European experience.

And the latest player linked with a move to Molineux has quite an impressive CV, too. Stefano Sturaro has been far from a regular in Juventus’s midfield in recent seasons, but he has won the Serie A title four seasons in a row while representing Italy at Euro 2016.

Newcastle United and West Ham have been heavily linked with the tenacious midfielder, as reported by the Chronicle, but Sturaro’s agent Carlo Volpi has now thrown two more names into the frame – Wolves and Southampton.


It remains to be seen whether Wolves’ interest is concrete or whether Volpi is resorting to an old agent trick in order to drum up interest in a client who could probably do with a fresh start away from Turin. Sturaro started just eight Serie A games in 2017/18.

Just because Sturaro is struggling for chances at Juventus it does not mean he would not be a fantastic signing for Wolves. The prospect of he and Ruben Neves together in midfield should have supporters drooling.
