By Oliver Fisher -

Torino are the latest team to show an interest in signing Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez this summer, according to a report.

After struggling for playing time in the first half of the season, the Swiss international was loaned to PSV Eindhoven in January, though the Eredivisie side appear unwilling to make the move a permanent one.

According to Calciomercato.com however, Rodriguez may have an opportunity to stay in Italy. Marco Giampaolo has just been appointed as Torino’s new head coach, and he has recommended the former Wolfsburg star to sporting director Davide Vagnati as an option to strengthen the team.

The negotiation is moving fast and is already well under way, so much so that an important meeting is scheduled to tie everything up on Tuesday.

Paolo Maldini, in the meetings he has already had with Torino, was clear: for Rodriguez the request is €4.5million. This is an amount that Torino president Urbano Cairo seems willing to pay.

Then, it will be up to the Granata to find an agreement on personal terms with the player, there is confidence in the success of the negotiation.
