Newcastle United may finally have received the green light in their reported hunt to sign Juventus midfielder Stefano Sturaro.
The report details that a deal is “about to close” and that it could be worth around £13.2million, with the Magpies trying to convince the player of a move to England.
Sturaro, 25, is a combative central midfielder who has four international caps for Italy and is renowned for his defensive work.
However, it seems like Newcastle are now front-runners to sign Sturaro and he would bolster the options in the centre of the park at St James' Park.
He enjoyed a frustrating campaign last season by making just 19 appearances across all competitions, which is why a fresh move to a new club could help him reignite his form.
