Torje set for Granada move

The agent of Udinese midfielder Gabriel Torje has revealed that his client will spent next season on loan at Granada.

The talented midfielder arrived to Friuli last summer as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, but, following some promising showings at the start of the season, the Romanian has largely struggled to fulfill his potential.

The attacking midfielder scored just 2 goals in 21 Serie A games, which was not enough to convince the club chiefs he has what it takes to help the team next season.

As a result, the Romanian international is now set to be farmed out on loan to La Liga side Granada.

“It’ll be better for him, as Granada play with a 4-2-3-1 or even a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3,” agent Cristian Opria told Romanian TV station Digisport.

“Granada will reinforce the squad with five or six new players, so it’ll be perfect. I think in a year Torje will be able to prove his quality.”

Granada act as a feeder club for Udinese and the Zebrette hope one Torje will be ready to meet the demands of Italian Serie A after one season at Estadio Nuevo Las Carmenes.

The newly promoted side managed to avoid a straight return to Segunda by a single point last season.
