Stefano Sturaro’s agent has hinted that his client may leave Juventus in the January transfer window.

Newcastle United were linked with the central midfielder in the summer transfer window with the club playing down the reports as Juventus slapped a €20m asking price on him.

But in November Sturaro’s agent claimed that Newcastle and Everton were interested in his player and could come back in again in January. Everton have since switched managers, however.

Manager Rafa Benitez is known to want quality additions in January to help the club move away from the relegation scrap they currently find themselves in.

And if Sturaro really is a target, his agents latest comments will offer hope that he may be more receptive to a move next month.

The Italian’s agent Carlo Volpi told Tribal Football: “Juventus have a team strong enough to be highly competitive for Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League.

“Stefano has already played both in CL and in Serie A this year and he wants to train even harder in order to be ready when his moment comes.

“Juventus also have such midfielders as Matuidi, Marchisio and Khedira: they all are around 30 years old and incredibly talented and charismatic.

“There are clubs from the Premier [League] which made clear they are interested in Stefano, it would be unfair to name them but the news is coming out. January is imminent.

“But there are many important games to play and Stefano is highly focused on his role in the team.”

The 24-year-old chose to stay at Juventus despite interest in him in the summer.

Since then though, he’s made just seven appearances for the Serie A outfit, with only one of those being a league start.

His agent’s comments suggest he may look to leave in January, either permanently or on loan.

Stefano has been capped four times by Italy, although he won’t be hoping for games with next summer’s World Cup in mind as Italy failed to qualify.
