Torino are on the verge of concluding a deal with Santos for defender Lucas Verissimo at €7.5m plus bonuses.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the negotiations are close to a successful outcome after fighting off competition from Lazio, Olympique Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais.
The Brazilian centre-back turns 23 next month and has attracted plenty of interest from Europe this summer.
After Lyon had seemed to agree terms, but didn’t finish the deal, Torino came back in with an improved bid and are ready to conclude.
