Torino look at Gillet

Newly promoted Torino are looking at the possibility of signing Jean-Francois Gillet at the request of boss Giampiero Ventura.

The Granata are expected to recruit a new custodian over the summer and the tactician knows all about the Belgian.

Gillet played under the 4-4-2 tactician at Bari before both men left for new adventures. Ventura took charge of Toro in the summer, while the ‘keeper moved to Bologna.

The former Standard Liege, Mantova and Treviso No 1 was signed by the Stadio Dall’Ara outfit for just €1.4m.

It’s unclear whether the Rossoblu are willing to sell given that the net-minder played such a vital role in keeping the club in Serie A.

Gillet made 29 Serie A appearances in which he conceded 32 goals.
