Torino interested in Gagliardini but Conte wants the chance to evaluate everyone first during preseason
Torino have long been a great fan of Roberto Gagliardini whose cost is between €15M-€18M. Negotiation could have gone smoothly had it not been for the arrival of Antonio Conte.
The Italian coach would like to at least evaluate everyone in the first few days of preseason training camp before making final decisions. On Inter’s part, the club is looking for another central defender and is open to let go of the midfielder (after Conte’s evaluation) in exchange for Armando Izzo.
The problem here is that Cairo, Torino president, considers Izzo not for sale. This is why that the only way for Gagliardini to join Torino is for them to pay the requested fee.
