Allardyce to seal Jussi reunion before setting sights on Juve duo Krasic and Elia
Jussi Jaaskelainen is set to kick off West Ham’s summer spending spree as Sam Allardyce eyes shock moves for Juventus duo Milos Krasic and Eljero Elia.
The Hammers boss was filmed meeting Juve director Fabio Paratici and reports in Italy claim the Upton Park boss is keen on the wingers.
Krasic and Elia have both been told they can leave Turin this summer as the Serie A champions try to raise cash to sign a world-class striker.

The capture of Finnish international Jussi Jaaskelainen is a wise one, not least because Sam Allardyce clearly didn’t manage, or didn’t want to, persuade Robert Green to sign a new contract. The veteran Bolton keeper is clearly well know to the Upton Park boss and is a very able and consistent performer with bags of top level experience.
Moves for Juventus attacker Milos Krasic and Eljero Elia may prove far more tricky to secure. Clearly the East London side have pulled off some big name signings in recent seasons, most notably Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano and perhaps with the return to the top tier there is some possibility of Allardyce landing one, but surely not both, of the pair who appears to be surplus to requirements.
Milos Krasic arrived from CSKA Moscow after impressing many the season before but the Serbian international has failed to make an impact in Italy and was barely used by Antonio Conte. Eljero Elia has similarly struggled to get a start at the Turin side, who last term clinched the Serie A title without losing a single game.
