Antonio Nocerino has been keen to stress his desire to stay at West Ham United after his loan spell ends, but it now looks like he could be returning to Italy.
The Italian international arrived at Upton Park in January along with compatriot Marco Borriello hoping to reinvigorate his career after slipping down the pecking order at AC Milan.
There were high hopes for Nocerino at West Ham and while the Hammers did manage to stay up after his arrival, he didn't quite catch fire.
Nocerino has stated publicly that he would like to stay on in East London instead of returning to Milan, but a move to Torino may be agreeable to the 29-year-old.
It is rumoured that at the meal he told the Italian internationals that he is hoping to join them at Torino next season.
Milan will restructure the squad fairly comprehensively in the summer and it may be that more space for Nocerino opens up, but he seems to be out of favour.
Torino could be a good fit for Nocerino and they will have money to spend if they hold on to their Europa League qualification place.
However, the Granata are also said to be focussed mainly on trying to sign Brazilian right-back Bruno Peres from Santos at present.
Should West Ham sign Nocerino permanently?
