Torino have offered €20m plus €5m bonuses for Napoli winger Simone Verdi, according to reports, surpassing Sampdoria.
The former Bologna man has failed to make much of an impact at the Stadio San Paolo and is not believed to be part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.
According to Rai Sport, Toro are the new favourites with a proposal worth €20m and another €5m in performance-related bonuses.
This allows the Granata to move in front of Sampdoria in the race for Verdi.
Toro have more spending money after entering the Europa League preliminary rounds, thanks to Milan’s UEFA exclusion for Financial Fair Play violations.
