Stefano Sturaro received offers from Everton and Valencia along with “80 per cent of Italian clubs,” said his agent, but Juventus reject all of them.
The 24-year-old midfielder has been in Turin since 2014 and although he doesn’t get regular playing time, can always be relied upon, including in a right-back role.
“In Italy, 80 per cent of clubs want him, some more insistently than others,” agent Carlo Volpi told IlBiancoNero.com.
“Abroad, Valencia and Everton are the sides that principally want him. Stefano’s situation is clear: Juve won’t let him go, because he’s a player the Bianconeri need.
“Naturally, we are pleased at interest from Italy and abroad with so many clubs calling us, but the directors are saying no to everybody.
“We know that anything can happen on the transfer market, but Juventus were clear with everybody. Massimiliano Allegri has always asked for Sturaro to stay in the squad.”
It’s reported that the Serie A sides who most pushed for Sturaro were Genoa, Atalanta and Sassuolo.
