Torino have officially signed Italy Under-21 internationals Daniele Baselli and Davide Zappacosta from Atalanta.
The double deal is believed to have cost around €13m, reinvesting the €18m plus €2m bonuses earned from Matteo Darmian’s move to Manchester United.
It’s quite a coup for the Granata, as Baselli had been in negotiations with both Milan and Fiorentina.
Zappacosta had an offer on the table from Liverpool and was said to be of interest to Juventus.
As Zappacosta is currently on vacation in Canada, it’s reported he signed the contract via email.
Baselli is a 23-year-old midfielder and product of the famed Atalanta youth academy.
He scored two goals in 50 Serie A games for the Orobici and a picture was released of him signing the contract by GR Sports Agency.
Zappacosta is a right-back who just turned 23 and has three goals in 29 top flight appearances.
He joined Atalanta in 2011, going out on loan to Avellino.
