Toro turn down Lavezzi

Ezequiel ‘Pocho’ Lavezzi was proposed to Torino, it’s reported, but the Granata weren’t interested in the Hebei China Fortune striker.

The Argentine just turned 34 and was hoping for a return to Europe after leaving Paris Saint-Germain in February 2016.

He would’ve appreciated a Toro transfer, as he’d reunite with former Napoli Coach Walter Mazzarri.

However, Sky Sport Italia expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims Torino were not interested in pursuing the matter any further.

Toro charge towards Europe

With Torino unexpectedly given a shot at the Europa League, Jay Cassano evaluates where the squad needs to improve.

Milan's exclusion from European football as a result of their Financial Fair Play settlement means Torino gets to take their place. In truth, missing a season of the Europa League won't have much impact on Milan's fortunes given their strong revenue base while they try to become a Champions League squad once again. But for Torino, it represents a significant upswing in fortunes. This windfall sets the Granata up to continue building on the strong work they've done in recent seasons.
