Torino are looking to take Getafe and Uruguay midfielder Mauro Arambarri in January.
The Granata needed a midfielder in that setup ever since coach Marco Giampaolo took charge in August, but Lucas Torreira left Arsenal for Atletico Madrid instead.
There will be another try for Torreira in January, the more likely candidate is his fellow Uruguayan Arambarri.
The 25-year-old moved to Getafe for €2.15m in 2018 and his current contract is due to June 2023.
As they say, the amount asked will be in the region of €20m and after eight Liga appearances this season, he has scored one goal.
