Playing for Torino since 2019/20 (on his second tenure around for Turin-based club overall), 29-year old Italian attacking midfielder and winger Simone Verdi, purchased from Napoli on an overall massive 25 million euros transfer fee back then, didn’t meet the expectations set upon him at all. Shifting from a senior international status to a semi-regular one for a club running to avoid second-tier relegation, AC Milan alumni might end up leaving Granata before the buzzer, on a loan spell at least.

Still on a deal with “The Bull” until June 2023, Verdi has to this been inquired about by both Bologna, which he used to play for in 2016/17 and 2017/18, providing Felsinei his best career performances to date, and Genoa. Previously tracked also by Cagliari and Sampdoria, former Empoli playmaker is currently earning a 1.7 million euros annual salary.
