Torino defender Nicolas Nkoulou requested to be held out of tonight’s clash against Sassuolo as his future could be away from the Granata. Paolo Aghemo of Sky Sport reports that the former Lyon man asked not to even be on the bench for this evening’s affair due to being unsettled about his future. The request is linked to the transfer market interest surrounding the 29 year-old as Roma continue to be heavily linked with to him.
