Italian sources indicate that West Ham are considering a bold move for Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli as David Moyes looks for an upgrade on Tomas Soucek.
According to Tutto Juve, West Ham scouts have witnessed Locatelli’s impressive performance this season and are eager to sign him. The London club is willing to spend up to 40 million euros in exchange for this player’s services.
Locatelli joined Juventus from Sassuolo in 2021 on a two-year loan with an option to buy permanently. And this clause was implemented for 30 million euros (about £26.1 million) in July this year.
The 25-year-old is one of Juventus’ standout players, having made 101 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring 4 goals and providing 8 assists. His excellent form has earned him a regular place in the Italian national team.
However, Juventus has absolutely no intention of letting their midfielder leave. On the contrary, Ba Dam Gia will soon negotiate a contract extension to keep Locatelli at Alianz Stadium.
