Torino continue negotiations with Crotone for creative midfielder Junior Messias, whittling down the details on a deal worth over €10m.
The Granata had already emerged as the favourites for the Brazilian over the last few days.
Sportitalia report the talks continued today with more discussions between the clubs over the transfer fee.
Toro are prepared to pay €10m, whereas Crotone are asking for €12-13m, but that can be bridged with add-ons and bonuses.
Messias is a specific request from new Torino coach Ivan Juric.
Despite turning 30 last month, this was his debut Serie A season, having spent his entire career in the lower leagues.
He scored nine goals and provided four assists in 36 top flight games.
