Torino revive talks with Lyon for Joachim Andersen as loan offer with permanent option is prepared

Sky Sport Italia report today that Torino are continuing to work on bringing in new players for Marco Giampaolo, with a particular focus on defensive recruits after yesterday’s opening day loss to Fiorentina.

In particularm, the Granata have revived talks with Ligue 1 outfit Lyon over the possibility of signing Danish centre-back Joachim Anderson, who was previously managed by Giampaolo during his stint at Sampdoria.

Torino’s offer would consist of a €3m loan deal, along with an option to buy set around the region of €18m.

Sassuolo’s Gian Marco Ferrari remains another option for the club, even if a deal for the player would seem unlikely at this point in time.
