Torino's interest in Simone Verdi is becoming the center of their summer transfer dealings. Ancelotti's team will likely not include the Italian next season, so he could leave to pursure an opportunity elsewhere. Verdi, a Torino player from 2011-2012, could return to the granata, as the ideal strike partner for Belotti, according to Mazzarri. The negotiations however between the clubs will not be simple, considering both Cairo and De Laurentiis' tendancies on transfer dealings. The deal for Maksimovic between the clubs had many problems leading up to the finalization. Verdi is open to the transfer, partly to be closer to his family in Milan. Secondarily, Verdi's agent Branchini has a good relationship with Torino: Salvatore Sirigu is another client of the agent.
