Report: Hammers in for Juve midfielder

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.

However, the report claims the Hammers are in competition with Newcastle and that Leicester City too could join the race for his services.

Stuaro has been with Juve for four years but last season made only 11 starts in all competitions last season although he appeared off the bench a further eight times as Juve won the Italian domestic double.

  1. This geezer looks like an absolute tank in midfield. He can also pass the ball and get forward too. The only doubt is composure, but perhaps his good points out weigh that doubt.

  2. Strong, quick, can pick a pass and don’t mind tracking back. Looks a good option.

  3. Eleven starts in all competitions and West Ham are interested ;; do me a favour , please .

  4. I remember watching him a couple of seasons ago and thinking what a solid player he was would certainly fill the cdm role quite well, I personally hope Rice is given a crack all season at being a central defender, if Rice can fix picking the flight of the long diagonal which is the only area he has looked susceptible often jumping underneath it he has the world at his feet, I don’t see Rice as a CDM for me his best position is centre back.

  5. their midfield consists of matuidi, khedira and pjanic( tipped to go to chelsea for 70 mill. so it’s no wonder he’s found it hard to break in.
