Torino inch closer to Niang price

Torino are prepared to raise their offer for striker M’Baye Niang closer to the €18m Milan asking price, claim La Stampa.

The forward has made it very clear he doesn’t want to accept a far more lucrative move to Russia for Spartak Moscow.

He intends to reunite with former Rossoneri boss Sinisa Mihajlovic at Torino and even handed in a medical certificate citing ‘stress’ so he didn’t need to attend training.

So far, Milan have rejected the Granata proposal, but according to Turin-based newspaper La Stampa, the negotiations will step up on Monday.

The offer on the table would be €3-4m for the loan and €11-12m obligation to buy at the end of the season.
