Hellas Verona are said to be closing in on River Plate midfielder Adrian Ezequiel Cirigliano after securing Luca Toni.
The 21-year-old Argentine had been linked with the likes of Inter and Napoli in the past, but opted to remain in Buenos Aires.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Verona could capture Cirigliano on loan with an option to buy if they remain in Serie A.
