West Ham are this morning reported as being keen to bring Juventus midfielder Stefano Stuaro to the London Stadium this summer.
He is the latest player to be linked with the Irons where Manuel Pellegrini is very much in the market for a couple of players in the middle of the park.
And according to Tuttoport we have already lodged a € 20 million bid as the 25 year old Italian learned he will be allowed to leave his club.
