Torino have joined Napoli in tracking Inter midfielder Matias Vecino, with both clubs’ managers hoping to bring in the Uruguayan for next season.
This according to Italian news outlet L’Interista, who report that the Granata have emerged among the 29-year-old’s suitors, and that the Partenopei’s interest is as strong as ever.
Vecino struggled to make an impact last season under Antonio Conte due to lengthy spells on the sidelines through injury, though it is thought that he could be in the plans of Conte’s successor Simone Inzaghi next season.
However, the player also has admirers among other clubs in Serie A, with Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti in particular fancying a reunion with the midfielder with whom he worked for two seasons while in charge of the Nerazzurri.
The Partenopei could step up their search for a central midfielder after an injury to German midfielder Diego Demme, and Vecino looks to be among their top targets.
Torino join them in the chase for the Uruguayan’s signature, with the player reported to be a target as they look to build an ambitious project under newly-appointed manager Ivan Juric.
