Exactly a week ago, we relayed a story from Il Secolo XIX claiming that Miguel Britos had been offered to Sampdoria, who were on the lookout for a new centre-back.
The Watford man has been a fringe player for the past year or so at Vicarage Road, and while he did recently sign a new one year extension with the Hornets, an exit this summer isn’t to be discarded.
Sampdoria clearly didn’t follow through with their very mild interest, but there is one club in Italy who could come forward in the coming weeks: Torino.
Currently managed by former Watford manager Walter Mazzarri, the Serie A outfit are also looking to bolster their defence, and the 33-year-old could be an option for them to turn to.
This is what Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting on Tuesday, claiming the Uruguayan defender ‘remains on the radar’.
However, Torino would only make a move if they can get rid of Joel Obi, as this would free up a non-EU slot in their squad to accommodate Britos.
One we’ll be keeping our eye on.
