Torino are on the hunt for a midfielder, and Steven Nzonzi is a player who is thought to be on their radar.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Torino are linked with surprise move for Roma midfielder Steven Nzonzi.
The France international joined Roma from Sevilla for a fee in the region of 26.65 million euros in August 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2022. In August 2019, Nzonzi was sent to Galatasaray on a season-long loan.
This season, Nzonzi has provided one assist in 8 appearances for Galatasaray.
Walter Mazzarri wants to sign a new midfielder and Steven Nzonzi is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Nzonzi and believes he can get the most out of the France international.
Steven Nzonzi can play multiple positions in midfield.
According to Calciomercato, “Italian Serie A outfit Torino are still keen on signing AS Roma’s midfielder Steven Nzonzi who is currently on loan at Turkish club Galatasaray. It is believed that the Turin-based club’s hierarchy are interested in bringing the former Sevilla midfielder to the club, but because of having poor relationship with the Rome-based club, they know it is not going to be easy. However, the deal is not completely out of question as Roma can either ask Torino to include Bonifazi, Lyanco or Bremer in the deal who will come to Stadio Olimpico in return or the Toro will be asked to permanently sign the midfielder who earns €3.5 million per season.”
