Inter and Roma target Izzo

Torino have put defender Armando Izzo on the market for January, with Roma and Inter believed to be the favourites for his signature.

The 28-year-old centre-back is not fitting into new Toro coach Marco Giampaolo’s tactical vision, while he has also struggled with some injury concerns.

He made only one appearance for the Granata this season, a 1-0 opening day defeat to Fiorentina on September 19.

Izzo-Vecino swap deal in January?

Torino defender Armando Izzo could reportedly end up at Inter in January, in a proposed swap deal including Matias Vecino.

The former Fiorentina star Vecino is not expected back from injury until November and the Nerazzurri were reportedly trying to sell the player during the transfer market.

Tuttosport reveals Izzo has been left out of coach Marco Giampaolo’s plans in Turin too and could be used to convince Inter to part ways with the Uruguayan midfielder this summer.

Torino close on Torreira

Lucas Torreira is increasingly close to a Marco Giampaolo reunion at Torino, according to reports, with Arsenal ready to accept €24m.

The Gunners paid over €28m to sign him from Sampdoria in 2018, where he had already worked under the coach.

He has fallen down the pecking order in London and is looking for a return to Serie A, where he also played for Pescara.

According to Calciomercato.com and Tuttosport, Torino are getting closer to an agreement to purchase Torreira outright from Arsenal for €24m.

Smalling in the balance for Roma

Roma have seen another proposal for Chris Smalling rejected by Manchester United and are starting to consider other options, it’s reported.

There was hope the deal could be done on loan with obligation to buy for a total of €11.5m, but it seems as if that too has been turned down.

It’s reported the bid was eventually just under that, at €9.5m plus €2m in bonuses.

Manchester United continue to demand €20m for the centre-back, who has his heart set on the Stadio Olimpico after an excellent season on loan.

Cairo: 'We'll keep Belotti'

Torino President Urbano Cairo said Andrea Belotti is not for sale and hopes to put coach Marco Giampaolo ‘in a position to do his best work’.

The Italy international has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Grande Torino, but patron Cairo insists the target man is not up for grabs.

“We’ll keep Belotti. It’s not up for discussion,” he told La Stampa.

But Cairo admitted that Armando Izzo could be on his way and maintains Torino will replace whoever leaves.

Tuttomercatoweb claims CEO Joe Barone has contacted Torino but the Viola haven’t made a concrete offer for the centre-back.

Sporting director Daniele Prade has already been in touch with the Granata and made sure Fiorentina are in pole position by requesting information about a possible transfer for the 28-year-old Italy international.

Torino target Vecino?

Torino are, according to Tuttosport, ready to offer Armando Izzo to get Inter outcast Matias Vecino.

Marco Giampaolo has taken over at the Grande Torino and has reportedly targeted a host of new additions for the Granata squad.

Tuttosport claims Inter are prepared to cash in on Vecino this summer and Torino could send Izzo in the opposite direction.

The report claims the Nerazzurri have followed Izzo for a long time, but that the purchase of a centre-back would depend on coach Antonio Conte’s future at San Siro.

Longo: 'Toro can't drop guard'

Moreno Longo has warned Torino that ‘we mustn’t make the mistake of lowering our guard’ against already-relegated SPAL later.

Torino will secure their place in Serie A for another season with victory over SPAL, but Longo remains wary of facing a side who have ‘nothing to lose’.

“It’s a very important game, so we’ll have to approach it with a fighting spirit,” the coach said at a press conference.

Defensive headache for Longo

Torino are closing in on their worst defensive record since patron Urbano Cairo took over and adding to their woes, Moreno Longo could be without both Armando Izzo and Lyanco against Hellas Verona.

The Corriere di Torino claims Longo have concerns at the back, as Izzo will miss the match against Verona, whilst Lyanco is in doubt.

Koffi Djidij has not impressed in recent weeks either and the Torino coach must sort out the defence to prevent setting negative records at the Grande Torino this term.
