Serie A side allowing Arsenal and Man United target to leave

Italian side Torino are allowing Alessio Cerci to leave, alerting Manchester United and Arsenal, Express reports.

Gianluca Petrachi, Torino’s sporting director, has publically admitted that they could sell the Italian international this summer in the case Cerci wants to leave.

Man United and Arsenal have been keeping a close eye on the winger, who scored 13 goals and assisted 12 last season.

His fine form has also attracted interest from Italian sides AS Roma and AC Milan, who could possibly make a bid after the World Cup.

Cerci’s contract expires at the end of 2016, but although they are keen to keep the 26-year-old, Petrachi believes it is ultimately up to the player who decides where he’ll end up playing.

“We want to keep Alessio because we don’t need to sell at this moment in time,” Petrachi said.

“That was also the case for Immobile [who joined Borussia Dortmund], but the will of the player is important.”

Cerci is part of Italy’s 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup and could be involved when they face England in Manaus this Saturday.
