Torino have reportedly made contact with Juventus regarding the possible swoop of Sebastian Giovinco.
According to Sky Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Toro are keen on netting the Italian international next month.
Juventus are said to be unwilling to loan the 26-year-old, but they would consider selling 50 per cent of his contract or all of it if a high enough bid was tabled.
Giovinco, who returned to Juve in the summer of 2012 after two successful seasons at Parma, has struggled this season with form and fitness.
The forward has scored two goals in 13 games across Serie A, the Champions League and the Coppa Italia.
Torino and Juventus also currently co-own Granata striker Ciro Immobile.
