Palermo block Torino for Rispoli

Torino have reportedly identified Andrea Rispoli as the replacement for Chelsea-bound Davide Zappacosta, but Palermo won’t sell.

Italian international Zappacosta appears set to move to Stamford Bridge for a fee of around €25m, leaving the Granata short of options at right-back.

After links to Cristian Ansaldi went cold, Tuttomercatoweb believes that Rispoli is the name at the top of their shortlist.

The 28-year-old has Serie A experience with the Rosanero and with Parma, but it appears the Sicilian side aren’t keen to sell.

Toro will therefore have to make a new offer to try and force Palermo’s hand, but there isn’t much time remaining in the transfer window to get a deal over the line.
