Report: Torino target Joao Pedro

Torino coach Marco Giampaolo wants Cagliari forward Joao Pedro as Iago Falque’s replacement.

Tuttosport reveals the Granata are looking for reinforcements in attack, as Falque seems set for a move to Benevento before the transfer deadline on October 5.

Brazilian attacker Joao Pedro impressed with the Casteddu in 2019-20 and the newspaper reveals Giampaolo hopes to lure the forward to the Grande Torino.

However, Cagliari President Tommaso Giulini is not expected to let Rossoblu’s leading goalscorer in 2019-20 leave unless the asking price is met, and the report claims the club wants between €15m-20m.

Joao Pedro, who scored 18 times in Serie A last term, started the new season with an assist in the 1-1 draw with Sassuolo last weekend.
