Torino have officially signed Albania international Arlind Ajeti from Frosinone.
“Ajeti is a prospect we had been chasing for months and, as is only natural, many clubs were interested in him,” said director of sport Petrachi.
The centre-back had been linked with Lazio, but Toro managed to snatch him with very little fuss.
“Thank you to all of Torino for this opportunity,” Ajeti told the official club website.
“I had no hesitation accepting the proposal because Toro are a club who proved they believe in young players and this is the faith I need.
“I am happy to start the new season straight away with my new teammates.”
The 22-year-old was born in Switzerland and came up through the Basel youth academy before his move to Frosinone in January.
He made 16 Serie A appearances, scoring one goal.
