Torino, Sebastian Caceres is being evaluated for the defense

Among the priorities at home Torino ahead of the winter soccer market session there's definitely the purchase of a new central defender to replace Perr Schuurs, who is expected to be out for the rest of the season due to an ACL rupture. In recent days, the Granata management has reportedly set to work to try to meet the demands of coach Ivan Juric.

According to a report by "Tuttosport", one profile that would have gained momentum è that of Sebastian Caceres, a central defender from Uruguay and Club America, with whom he has a contract expiring in December 2024. In addition, the 1999-born player has reportedly already advised the Mexican club of his intention not to extend, as he would be tempted to try an experience in Europe.

The club, for its part, would not like to lose the player on a zero-parameter basis and would already have set the price for a possible transfer at around 10 million euros. Torino’s Ds. Davide Vagnati, however, would have put a €7 million offer on the plate to buy the player already in January. The granata, however, will have to deal with competition from several top European clubs, as Napoli, Tottenham and Sevilla have also reportedly inquired about the young defender.
