Torino close on Lorient winger Lauriente

FC Lorient attacking winger Armand Laurienté has chosen Torino and is pushing for a transfer, claim Sky Sport Italia.

The 23-year-old plays primarily on the right side of a trident attack, but can also work on the left or in a wide midfield role.

A product of the Rennes youth academy who joined FC Lorient in 2019, he contributed six goals and two assists in 35 Ligue 1 games this season.

Other clubs have also been linked, including Serie A sides Sassuolo and Napoli, but Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Laurienté has his heart set on Torino.

The offer on the table from the Granata is currently €6m plus up to €1m in various add-ons.

That is an increase from the previously reported €5m mentioned in a report by L’Equipe earlier this week.

It is still a little while off the €8m asking price put forward by Lorient.
