Reports in the Italian media suggest Juventus will bring Stefano Sturaro back to the club in January, six months ahead of schedule.

The Italy U-21 midfielder joined the Bianconeri last summer for €5.5 million and was immediately loaned back to Genoa for the 2014/15 season.

Sportsmediaset suggest that Juventus have found an agreement to bring the Azzurrini star to Turin while report that Juventus have already agreed the return in principle, the final ‘okay’, however, will come from Genoa, once their injury situation improves.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve coach Max Allegri would like to accelerate Sturaro’s return, given that Kwadwo Asamoah and Romulo are both recovering from surgery and not expected to return for at least another two months.
