Turin, here’s who you need in January: what the first days of the championship said

Calciomercato Torino / The midfielder is also the priority from a numerical point of view, Belotti’s heir is not there

After seven days the championship stopped to make way for the national teams and it is the right time for the first budgets. Let’s go in order and start with the defense: this summer the pillar of the rear guard, Gleison, was sold Bremer, and replacing him was not at all easy, especially considering that Davide Vagnati had a quarter of the money collected from the sale of the Brazilian. From what we saw against Cremonese, Lecce and Sassuolo, the granata dt was good at finding Perr Schuurs: He still needs to improve in some respects, especially when he is called to set up the action, but the Dutchman has so far shown that he has good qualities and that he can become a very important player for this Torino.

Turin transfer market: Praet and not just for the midfield

The sore points arrive in midfield: even the stones know that Ivan Juric would have wanted an extra player in the middle of the field and that until the last day of the summer transfer market session Vagnati tried to catch Dennis Praet, but without succeeding. The granata manager will make a new attempt in January but the impression is that a different player is also needed in the median, that muscular midfielder that Juric was asking for and that for physical characteristics he remembers a little Tommaso Pobega. The only player in the middle of the field to arrive in the summer is Emirhan İlkhan: woe to reject him for the mistake in marking on Marcelo Brozovic committed against Inter, he is a boy you certainly promise that he needs time to integrate better with Toro and in Italy.

Turin, the double-digit striker is missing

Let’s move on to the attack: Andrea went away Belotti and it was decided not to replace him by focusing, in fact, on those who last year were the reserves of the Gallo, Antonio Sanabria and Pietro Pellegri. The first is not a double-digit bomber, we knew it, the second is a player still to be discovered, due to the injuries that have limited him in recent years. In these first seven days neither of them has shown that they can be the heir of the Gallo in terms of goals: they still have eight games before the stop for the World Cup and the opening of the market in January to make everyone change opinions, if not should they succeed in the winter session Urbano Cairo and Davide Vagnati will have to think about finding a new center forward as well.
