Torino consider Niang offers

M’Baye Niang is still on the market for Torino, with interest from Leganes, Real Betis and Lokomotiv Moscow.

With Simone Zaza and Roberto Soriano arriving on transfer deadline day, Niang is no longer needed.

The 23-year-old forward is under contract until June 2021, having arrived from Milan last summer for €14m.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Betis and Leganes have asked for Niang, but are only prepared to take him on loan with option to buy.

The option would become an obligation after a certain number of appearances for the club.

Lokomotiv Moscow are prepared to join in the race imminently, while Bordeaux and Olympique Marseille only offered a loan deal.

Senegal international Niang scored only four goals with three assists in 29 competitive appearances for Torino.

He received more yellow cards – six – than goals.
