Torino to get Djidji and Soriano

Torino have reportedly agreed terms for Nantes defender Koffi Djidji and Villarreal’s Roberto Soriano.

According to Cuore Toro, Djidji put pen to paper this evening and are just awaiting the official announcement.

The 25-year-old arrived earlier today for his medical and is expected to arrive on loan with option to buy.

Meanwhile, Sky Sport Italia and Cuore Toro both report that they failed to agree terms for Empoli midfielder Rade Krunic, so decided to go all-in for Villarreal player Soriano.

The 27-year-old was born and raised in Germany to Italian parents and spent his formative football years in Italy with Sampdoria and Empoli.

He moved to Villarreal for €13.75m in the summer of 2016 and has eight senior caps for the Azzurri.

Torino agreed a €1m loan with option to buy for €14m and Soriano is already flying in to have his medical in the morning.

The option to buy would become an obligation once he makes a certain number of appearances for the club.
