Torino consider Deni Alar

Torino are reportedly considering SK Sturm Graz striker Deni Alar as a replacement for Maxi Lopez.

With Lopez looking increasingly likely to leave the club this January due to concerns over his inability to lose weight, reports in the Austrian media have suggested that the Granata are looking at the Austria U21 forward as an alternative.

Alar arrived at Sturm Graz from Rapid Wien in the summer, exploding onto the scene after scoring 13 goals in 19 appearances for the club.

Tall and imposing, the Croatian-born centre-forward has been compared to current Toro striker Andrea Belotti in terms of playing style.
