Negotiations between Torino and Marco Giampaolo are at an advanced stage as the former Sampdoria manager is ready to takeover at the Granata after having been chosen by president Urbano Cairo.
The Piedmontese club, according to Tuttosport, has already started to work on bringing in reinforcements for their soon-to-be new boss and one of those is Roma’s Patrik Schick.
The Czech attacker, who played under Giampaolo at Samp, is waiting to see if RB Leipzig, the club where he spent the season on loan, will be able to find a permanent deal with Roma.
The Germans have been in talks with the Giallorossi for weeks, but their offer for the attacker has, reportedly, not increased from €15 million.
Torino are waiting to see how the negotiations evolve and are pondering potentially adding defender Nicolas Nkoulou into the deal.
