Torino will fight to keep winger Alessio Cerci at the club, the Express understands.
The Italy international, who was part of Cesare Prandelli’s squad for this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil, has gained attention from a number of Premier League clubs following a fine 2013/14 Serie A campaign.
Arsenal, Everton and Manchester United have all been linked with the 26 year old who is valued at around £15m, though they face an uphill battle to secure his services.
Cerci moved from Fiorentin to Torino in the summer of 2012 having begun his career with Roma, while he has also had loan spells with Brescai, Pisa and Atlanta.
Last season, his thirteen goals in thirty-seven appearances helped his side to a seventh place finish in the Italian top flight.
Parma’s failure to acquire a UEFA license means that Torino replace them in the third qualifying round for next season’s Europa League.
