According to Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, the clubs have agreed a basic fee of €11m and Toro are meeting his agents this evening to thrash out the details of the personal terms.
The 20-year-old talent is a product of the Empoli youth academy who has spent his entire career at the club, helping them win the Serie B title and promotion last season.
He has made an impression in the top flight too, scoring one goal with one assist in 21 Serie A appearances so far this term.
Ricci was requested specifically by Torino coach Ivan Juric as a reinforcement for the January transfer window.
The player has nine caps for Italy at Under-21 level and is expected to make the step up to the senior squad with CT Roberto Mancini in the near future.
