TOTTOmercatoWEb are reporting news on Newcastle target Stefano Sturaro.
It’s not all new news – the central midfielder has rejected all offers from China but there are quotes from his agent Carlo Volpi who is speaking out about his player.
The new news is that Spanish clubs seem to have withdrawn their interest in Sturaro because of financial difficulties and while Newcastle are mentioned – so are Southampton and Wolverhampton.
25-year-old target Stefano Sturaro – Newcastle in the lead?
Here’s some of what Volpi has said when asked about which club Sturaro will be going to this summer:
“All offers from China have been refused because of the young age of the player.”
“And the Spanish offers have also faded due to the lack of economic strength, leaving England the first choice for Stefano.”
“Not just Newcastle are interested in him, but other clubs as well.”
“Ah, you know, for sure, Wolverhampton and Southampton have had a little thought (interest).”
It has been reported previously that Rafa is keen to bring the Italian International to the Premier League and that Newcastle United are leading the race to sign him.
Stefano is also said to be keen to join Rafa on Tyneside.
There’s a possibility this transfer can close soon – maybe even this week – we certainly hope so.
