There are reports Torino requested Guillermo Varela on loan from Manchester United.
The Granata are having an impressive campaign and can even push for European qualification.
Having officially sold Danilo D’Ambrosio to Inter today, they are looking to strengthen with Varela.
This rumour has gained traction in British media today, though it appeared in TuttoMercatoWeb and La Stampa last week.
The Uruguayan Under-20 international right-back could be available on loan until the end of the season to give him more playing time.
Torino are pushing for an option to make the move permanent.
