Newly promoted Serie A side Lecce have expressed interest in signing Ghana international Afriyie Acquah in the on-going summer transfer window.
Acquah, who spent last season on loan at Empoli is on the radar of the Serie A returnees as manager Fabio Liverani seeks to beef up his squad ahead of the next season.
The 27-year-old has been in Italy since 2011, where he played for Palermo and Parma before moving to Germany in 2013 to join Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim.
He returned to Italy in 2015 to play for Sampdoria on loan before finally making the move to Torino.
Last season he was shipped out on loan to Empoli, where he played 28 Serie A games scoring twice as the Gli Azzuris suffered relegation.
Afriyie has made 29 appearances for Ghana and is currently with the Black Stars team in the United Arab Emirates preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations later this month.
He is expected to make a decision over his future after the nations cup in Egypt.
