Tuttosport are reporting that a deal has been reached for Omar El Kaddouri to move to Torino permanently from Napoli.
The 22-year-old is on loan with the Granata this season and his performances for Giampiero Ventura’s side have steadily improved.
Now, it is said, a fee of around €2.2m has been agreed between the two clubs for the Moroccan to remain at Stadio Olimpico.
He will initially be obliged to return to his parent club at the end of the season but the player is fully aware that his chances of being part of Rafa Benitez’s future plans are very slim.
Any final decision on the transfer will reportedly be down to the player but it seems that a switch would be in the best interests of all parties.
