Mesbah close to Torino

Djamel Mesbah looks set to leave Milan this summer, with reports indicating that he is on the verge of joining Torino.

The 27-year-old left-back was a surprise mover in the January transfer market when the Rossoneri picked him up from relegation threatened Lecce.

Having struggled in his six months to assert a regular first-team position, the Algerian looks set to leave.

Reports this week have gathered pace that newly-promoted Torino are on the verge of a deal, and the latest rumours today suggest that they have reached an agreement with Milan to take 50 per cent of the player’s registration for a fee of €1.7m.
