Torino could make the loan move of Inter wingback Valentino Lazaro permanent next summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInter1908, who report that the 26-year-old’s form this season is making the Granata seriously think about exercising their €6 million purchase option at the end of the campaign.

Lazaro joined Torino on loan in the summer, with the Austrian having already spent time on loan with the likes of Newcastle United, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Benfica since joining the Nerazzurri.

The 26-year-old has never quite managed to fit in at Inter since joining from Hertha Berlin, and has also never quite convinced any of his loan clubs to sign him on a permanent basis.

However, Lazaro has been in good form for the Granata over the first part of the Serie A season.

For this reason, there looks to be a very good chance that Torino will decide to sign the wingback permanently.
