Gazzi arrives, Rubin departs

After a year long chase, Torino have finally completed the acquisition of Siena midfielder Alessandro Gazzi - who will finally be reunited with his former Bari coach Giampiero Ventura.

Ventura was interested in signing Gazzi last season, however with the midfielder reluctant to drop down to Serie B, he instead moved to Siena and he enjoyed a good campaign in the top tier with the Tuscan side. However, Torino have continued their pursuit this season, and have finally signed their man on a permanent deal.

As part of the deal, Torino defender Matteo Rubin has moved in the opposite direction on a co-ownership deal. However, as full back Rubin has not played for Torino since 2010, after loan spells at Bologna and Parma, then it shouldn't be too much of a loss for Toro.


  1. very good player , grit and stamina, right that we needed

  2. Haven't seen him play that much if I'm honest, but Ventura was very keen to sign him so I will trust his judgement....and yours :)
