Torino think of Ventura

Giampiero Ventura is one of three options to take charge of sleeping Italian giants Torino, reports claim.

Toro are looking for another new Coach after failing to even get into the play-offs at the end of another disappointing season.

Ventura, who was sacked by relegated Bari mid-term, is a contender after Stefano Colantuono yesterday signed a new deal at Atalanta.

Ventura is famed for an attractive 4-4-2 system that can be transformed into a 4-2-4 when necessary.

The 63-year-old is not the only option though for President Urbano Cairo and sporting director Gianluca Petrachi.

Massimo Ficcadenti is also understood to be a contender for the role after he recently left Cesena by mutual consent.

Delio Rossi is another man in the frame after he quit Palermo, but he already rejected an offer from Torino two years ago.

Toro appointed Franco Lerda last June but he was sacked on March 9, only to be recalled 11 days later after Giuseppe Papadopulo was quickly dismissed.
