Laurienté or Petagna for granata attack

There are two main names on the notebook of Torino technical director Davide Vagnati to take the roster spot vacated by the released Andrea Belotti: they are Armand Laurienté of Lorient and Andrea Petagna of Napoli.

According to ‘Tuttosport’ reports, the doubt for both is related to the cost of the transfer: the French, for Laurienté, are asking 8.5 million euros, Napoli for Petagna is asking 15. Torino is willing to invest but as far as both negotiations are concerned, it would be studying alternatives to amortize the costs, such as the proposal of technical counterparts.

Also possible is the inclusion of bonuses, both to the players and the clubs, linked to performance in a granata jersey in case of transfer. The two negotiations are proceeding in parallel, with Vagnati counting on giving the reinforcement to coach Ivan Juric as soon as possible.
