Torino put hands on Pegolo

Torino are on the verge of finally signing a new goalkeeper with Gianluca Pegolo very close to the Granata.

The Turin outfit are in need of a shot-stopper after first choice Jean-Francois Gillet was banned after being caught up in one of the various match-fixing betting probes.

Pegolo, 32, is available for transfer after his present club Siena were relegated from the top flight last term.

Tuttosport claim Toro sporting director Gianluca Petrachi met with the custodian’s agent on Sunday to discuss terms.

The two clubs have already come to an agreement, but Pegolo is continuing discussions with Torino regarding his proposed contract.

There is still a difference between salary demand and offer, while his agent is looking for the contract to include an option for a third season.
