Torino and Verona target Kouame

Torino and Hellas Verona are fighting to take striker Christian Kouame from Fiorentina, with offers reaching €12m plus bonuses.

According to Corriere Granata, the proposal on the table from Toro is a loan deal with obligation to buy at the end of the season.

It would be a total cost of €12m plus bonuses tied to the number of appearances and goals he scores for the club.

There is competition from Hellas Verona, especially after coach Ivan Juric confirmed to Sky Sport Italia last night that he is ‘regularly in contact’ with the forward.

They worked together at Genoa and it was the best period of Kouame’s career before a serious knee injury.

Fiorentina would need to find a replacement, as they already returned Patrick Cutrone to Wolverhampton Wanderers midway through his loan spell.
