It is an open secret that Torino need to sign a midfielder.
The latest reports in England suggest that Torino are pushing to loan Leicester City midfielder Dennis Praet.
The Belgium international joined Leicester from Sampdoria for a fee in the region of 19.2 million euros in August 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
In 60 appearances for Leicester, Praet has managed to score 3 goals, and create 5 goals for his teammates.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Belgium. Dennis Praet has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 13 senior appearances for the Belgium national team.
He is out of the picture at Leicester City, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
Ivan Jurić wants to sign a new midfielder and Praet is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a firm fan of Leicester City midfielder and Torino could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
Torino are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Belgium international will offer the Torino boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Torino are moving for Leicester City midfielder Dennis Praet. The Belgium international is unsettled at the Foxes and open to a return to Italy after losing his first-choice status. TMW says Toro are target the former Sampdoria midfielder. Talks are due to open today over a straight season-long loan for Praet. For his part, Praet would be happy to make the move to the Granata before the market shuts.”
