Italian Serie A side Torino have completed the signing of Ghanaian starlet Evans Osei on a season-long loan deal from Juve Stabia, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm.
But the 17-year-old midfielder will not join Black Stars midfielder Afriyie Acquah in Torino’s first team squad for the upcoming Serie A season.
However, Osei will join the Bulls Primavera squad and hope to catch the eyes of Giampiero Ventura who has a soft spot for young talents.
Osei spent the second-half of last season on loan at newly-promoted Serie A side Bologna but he was unable to weave his way into the first team squad as he was limited to Primavera action.
He is one of the early foreign-based players who trained with the 2015 Ghana U20 squad that reached the knock out rounds of the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand.
Juve Stabia President revealed early this year that AC Milan were interested in signing the talented midfielder.
