Toro: Soriano in, Acquah out

Torino have officially signed Roberto Soriano from Villarreal and sent Afriyie Acquah to Empoli.

Soriano arrives on loan for €1m with a €14m option to buy, while Transfermarkt reports Acquah has joined Empoli for €900,000.

The Italian scored 11 goals in 73 appearances for Villarreal, who paid Sampdoria €13.75m to sign him in 2016.

Initially a central midfielder, he tended to play out on the left for the Yellow Submarine and has eight caps for the Azzurri.

Acquah, meanwhile, played 79 times for Toro in three seasons but without ever holding down a first-team place.

Nonetheless, the 26-year-old has 29 caps for Ghana and should give the Serie A new boys some much-needed experience.

The Granata have had a busy deadline day, bringing in defender Koffi Djidji, and could yet sign Villarreal striker Simone Zaza.
