But with hindsight, Sturaro may be questioning whether he made the right decision.
The 24-year-old has garnered a paltry seven appearances so far this season, including just three starts - only one of which came in Serie A.
Volpi says Premier League clubs have retained an interest in the Italy international. And as January fast approaches, the chances Sturaro will leave Turin have increased exponentially.
"Stefano has already played both in CL and in Serie A this year and he wants to train even harder in order to be ready when his moment comes.
"Juventus also have such midfielders as Matuidi, Marchisio and Khedira: they all are around 30 years old and incredibly talented and charismatic.
"There are clubs from the Premier [League] which made clear they are interested in Stefano, it would be unfair to name them but the news is coming out. January is imminent.
"But there are many important games to play and Stefano is highly focused on his role in the team."
Valencia have also emerged as potential suitor for Sturaro.
Rafa Benitez has reiterated his desire to sign several 'quality' players when January arrives as he looks to reignite Newcastle's failing campaign.
But with the club's ownership takeover still in limbo, it is unclear whether the Spaniard will have the funds to do so.
