Torino to offer money plus Afriyie Acquah for Rade Krunic

Italian side Torino are in negotiations with Empoli to add Ghana midfielder Afriyie Acquah in a deal to bring Empoli Star Rade Krunic to Turin.

Torino boss Walter Mezzari is reported to be interested in signing 7 million rated Bosnian midfielder Rade Krunic but Empoli want midfielder Afriyie Acquah as part of the transfer.

According to reports in Italy, Empoli want 5 million euros and the Ghana International.

Afriyie Acquah has struggled to break into the first team of Torino since the arrival of the former Watford boss.

Empoli head coach Aurelio Andreazzoli believes the 26-year-old will be key to side's stay in the league with his vast experience.
