Cerci set for Torino switch

Alessio Cerci is reportedly on the verge of joining newly promoted Torino from Fiorentina.

The two clubs have been in discussions for the attacker and a co-ownership deal is thought to have been settled.

Torino will hand over €2.5m for a 50 per cent share in him, as well as having the option to complete his full signing next summer.

Cerci is set to be handed a contract that will be worth around €800,000 a campaign.

The former Roma, Pisa and Atalanta player had his difficulties in Florence last season and was regularly criticised by some sections of the Viola fanbase for his form.

The 25-year-old scored five goals in 23 games for the Stadio Franchi boys in the past campaign.
