Allardyce Spotted With Juventus Chief

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce was caught on camera by Sky Sports Italia today shaking hands and discussing matters with Juventus director Fabio Paratici.

It has been reported that speed merchant wingers Eljero Elia and Milos Krasic were top of the bill when it came to players discussed.

Elia is a Dutch international who moved to Juventus after one season with Hamburger where he moved for 9 Million Euros.

Krasic is a Serbian international who moved to The Old Lady of Italian football from CSKA Moscow, his first season was a big success with goals and assists aplenty, however injuries took their toll and the once ever present found games hard to come by this season under manager Antonio Conte.

Both players were linked with moves to The Premiership in January but nothing materialised with both players opting to fight for a place in the team.

If we can get either of these players then it will be a real step up in quality and a signal of intent from us that we are not just happy with avoiding relegation but looking to cement our position in the top flight. COYI.
