Toro close in on Verdi

Torino are reportedly on the verge of agreeing a deal for Napoli winger Simone Verdi.

According to journalist Niccolo Ceccarini for Tuttomercatoweb, Torino have today made a ‘big push’ to sign Verdi outright.

The Granata have more powers in the transfer market after they were admitted to the Europa League.

It follows a report from Rai Sport on Saturday that they had offered €20m plus €5m in bonuses.

The Partenopei spent almost €25m to sign the 26-year-old from Bologna last summer, but he managed just nine starts in 2018-19.

He has already played for Toro, making only 19 appearances between 2011 and 2015 before he was sold back to Milan.
