Arsenal closing on Izzo

Arsenal are stepping up talks for Torino defender Armando Izzo, claim several Italian sources, as his agent is in London.

According to Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb, the 27-year-old centre-back is edging closer to a Gunners transfer.

His agent, Paolo Palermo, has been in London for at least the last 24 hours and is believed to be in advanced talks with Arsenal.

Toro have resisted attempts to purchase Izzo in the past, but could part with him for around €30m.

Sevilla, Lazio and Inter were also mentioned as potential destinations for the Naples-born centre-back.
