Andrea Dossena’s proposed move to Torino is in the balance after the Napoli winger failed his medical.
The former Liverpool man was in Turin on Friday for a routine medical to complete the transfer when doctors found a muscular lesion.
This will require at least two to three weeks in order to fully heal, so Toro are thought to be reconsidering their options.
The move could still go through, but the Granata are taking some time to think it over.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Toro have turned to Udinese's Giovanni Pasquale instead and he is already in town for his medical.
