According to a report in the Daily Mail, Stefano Sturaro has picked a move to West Ham United over Newcastle United and Leicester City.

West Ham, Newcastle and Leicester are all said to be in talks with Juventus for the midfielder.


However, Sturaro is said to favour a move to the London Stadium, as he eyes a move to the Premier League.

West Ham have already made great strides this summer, bringing in some impressive targets, including Felipe Anderson.

And Sturaro could be on the verge of joining Anderson in making the move from Serie A to West Ham.

Although it is not concluded that West Ham will get the £18 million man, they are said to be his first choice.

And that could be bad news for Newcastle and Leicester, as they also look to agree a deal for the Italian international.
