Maxi Lopez looks set for a rollercoaster summer, with Torino and Genoa both fighting for his signature.
The Catania goalscorer, who spent last season on loan at Sampdoria, has become the subject of interest from the Granata and the Grifone, with both teams hoping to secure his services for the start of the season.
Negotiations between Torino and Catania were said to have hit a brick wall over the weekend, and according to Corriere Mercantile, Fabio Liverani’s men could take the initiative by offering a bid of their own.
The 29-year-old was at the Marassi last term with Samp, and reportedly enjoyed his time in Genoa.
