Torino boss Novellino eyes Man City's Bianchi
Torino coach Walter Novellino is hoping the club can pull off the signing of Manchester City striker Rolando Bianchi in the January transfer window.
Bianchi joined City from Reggina for £8.8million at the start of the season but has reportedly failed to settle in England.
Novellino believes the 24-year-old would be an ideal acquisition as Toro continue their fight against relegation - they currently lie 16th in the Serie A standings, only out of the bottom three on goal difference.
He said: 'We are struggling in attack and I know our club president (Urbano Cairo) is working very hard to try to bring a great striker like Bianchi to Toro.'
Torino are not the only Italian club in the hunt for Bianchi, however, as Lazio have also expressed an interest.
