Torino target Colombian duo

Torino are eyeing two Colombian internationals for next season: Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata.

The Granata will play in the Europa League preliminary rounds, taking the spot that had been won by Parma because of the Ducali’s financial irregularities.

According to Tuttosport, Coach Giampiero Ventura is targeting two Colombians who are already familiar to Serie A.

The first is Udinese forward Muriel, who struggled for playing time and confidence at the Stadio Friuli.

The other is Napoli benchwarmer Zapata, the centre-forward who could be loaned out in order to gain more Serie A experience.

Toro need a new striker after selling Ciro Immobile to Borussia Dortmund for €18m.
