Torino are discussing a move to sign Jese Rodriguez.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Torino are looking to loan Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Spain international was signed by Paris Saint-Germain in August 2016 from Real Madrid for a fee of 25 million euros. The 25-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.
In total, he has scored two goals from 14 Paris Saint-Germain matches.
Jese Rodriguez has represented Spain at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 33 caps and scoring 15 goals.
Rodriguez is out of the picture at Paris Saint-Germain, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
The report details that Walter Mazzarri feels his attack currently lacks some bite and that he could strengthen this winter.
Mazzarri is a long term admirer of Rodriguez and believes he can get the most out of the Spain international.
Torino are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
Jese Rodriguez would provide a good variety to Torino’s attack.
According to Football Italia (via Sportitalia), “Torino are increasingly likely to sign Jese Rodriguez from Paris Saint-Germain, on loan with option to buy. The Spaniard turns 26 next month and has not played a single minute of football this season. He is an outcast in Paris, having returned from loan spells at Las Palmas and Stoke City. The link had already been mentioned and the negotiations are stepping up. Sportitalia transfer guru Alfredo Pedullà insists Jese turned down Frosinone, while Parma are not entirely committed to the idea. Torino would gladly sign Jese, but only if PSG cover at least 60 per cent of his salary during the loan move.”

A move to Torino is exactly what Rodriguez needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
Torino fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
