Manuel Iori Becomes Torino's 5th Summer Signing

With less than one week until Torino depart for their pre season training camp in the Dolomites, Toro have made Chievo midfielder Manuel Iori their 5th summer signing.

After the departure of a number of central midfield players, coach Giampiero Ventura has made strengthening this area of the team a priority, and with continued links to Atalanta's Migjen Basha, Iori may not be the only central midfielder who signs for Torino this summer.

Whilst Iori's parent club is Chievo, the twenty-nine year old spent last season on loan at Livorno, scoring three times in 39 matches. As that statistic shows, Iori could not be described as a prolific goalscorer, and is apparently more of a regista, a deep lying playmaker who dictates the play for his teammates.

Iori has joined Torino on an loan, with an option to sign him on a Co-Ownership deal should he impress.
