According to reports in Italy, Torino have completed the signing of Dennis Praet from Leicester City on loan with an option to buy.
It was a quick negotiation between the Foxes and Torino as Praet, a former Sampdoria star, is set to make his return to Serie A.
Leicester City have reportedly agreed to sell the Belgium international on loan with an option to buy for €15m.
According to Il Corriere di Torino’s reporter Gianluca Sartori, Praet’s move to Torino is now a done deal.
The journalist adds that the signing of the 27-year-old means Sofyan Amrabat won’t join the Granata.

The Fiorentina midfielder was an option for Torino as he had impressed in his first Serie A campaign under Ivan Juric at Hellas Verona in 2019-20.
The Croatian boss looked annoyed and urged to club to make new signings after Torino’s 2-1 defeat against Fiorentina on Saturday.
Praet played 106 games for Sampdoria between 2016 and 2019 before completing a €19m switch to the King Power Stadium.
