Atalanta and Fiorentina target Torino pillar Armando Izzo

Atalanta and Fiorentina are interested in signing Torino centre-back Armando Izzo, according to Alfredo Pedulla.

Gian Piero Gasperini wants a strong defender for Atalanta’s Champions League run next year and that player is Izzo.

Izzo, 28, is a pillar at Torino and club chairman Urbano Cairo will not let him go for cheap.

Toro signed Izzo from Genoa for €8m plus €2m in bonuses and will want a big profit on that.

Even so, Atalanta plan to try and bring in Izzo, who has also been followed by Inter in the past.

Fiorentina could rival the Bergamo club for Izzo if they continue to have problems with Nikola Milenkovic.

Milenkovic is stalling on a new deal with Fiorentina amid rumours his agent is pushing him to AC Milan.

And if the Viola have to sell €50m-rated Milenkovic, they will look to Izzo as a replacement.

Italy boss Roberto Mancini handed Izzo his first three caps last year following his solid form for Torino.
