Torino have officially signed Dennis Praet from Leicester City, on loan with option to buy at the end of the season for a total reported figure of €16m.

The 27-year-old midfielder is no stranger to Serie A, having already represented Sampdoria from 2016 to 2019 before his €19.2m move to Leicester.

The Belgium international returns to Italy for Torino, with the loan costing €1m and an option to buy for a further €15m.

Praet has 13 senior caps for Belgium, scoring one goal, and took part in his nation’s UEFA EURO 2020 campaign.

He made 24 competitive appearances for Leicester City last season, contributing two goals and two assists.

Meanwhile, Torino have also officially sent 24-year-old midfielder Jacopo Segre to Serie B side Perugia, on loan with obligation to buy.

One thought on “Official: Leicester City loan Praet to Torino”
  1. I assumed it was just Giampaolo who was obsessed with bringing former Sampdoria players to Torino, but maybe it runs deeper. However, this looks like a good deal with a reasonable loan fee and the chance to make it permanent if it works out.
