Torino have competition from Sampdoria in the race for Napoli forward Simone Verdi, but they must pay €25m.
The 27-year-old is not in Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s plans, although the Partenopei don’t want to make a loss on his transfer.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Torino had a €21m proposal rejected.
Now Sport Mediaset note that Sampdoria are also preparing a bid for free kick specialist Verdi at much the same level.
They’ll both need to raise the offers if they want to snap up the former Bologna talent.
