Celta Vigo’s Pione Sisto close to Torino move

Torino are closing in on the signing of out-of-favour Celta Vigo winger Pione Sisto, according to a report published in Marca.

It follows on from reports in the same outlet that a €10m move to English club Aston Villa broke down earlier this month at the eleventh hour.

The Danish international is said to have been offered a €1m annual salary – ‘a significant increase on his current income’, but the player had reservations about the move.

It is said that the winger will not be a regular in Celta’s line-up this season and they will be hopeful of selling him on before the end of August, even though the English transfer window has already shut.

Sisto arrived at Celta in a €6m deal from Danish side FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2016 and for this reason, the Galician club are disappointed they could not cash in on their profit with a theoretical sale to Villa.

It is also said that Celta are particularly keen to shift the player from their wage bill and secure a transfer fee due to their persistence in re-signing their former forward Nolito from Sevilla this summer window.
