David Okereke returns to Serie A with Torino

According to reports in Italy, Serie A side Torino only settled for Nigerian striker David Okereke after they failed to land Sevilla striker Rafa Mir.

David Okereke joined Torino on loan till the end of the season from Serie B club Cremonese. The former Spezia striker will be hoping to make a mark on his return to the top flight.

The club announced the signing of the Nigerian as well as Adam Masina, a left-back who joined on loan from Udinese, Matteo Lovato on loan from Salernitana, and Uroš Kabić on loan from Red Star Belgrade all till the end of the season.

Before his move to Torino, Okereke had only scored two goals in 17 Serie B appearances while firing blanks in two Italy Cup games. 

Since returning to Italy after his brief stint with Club Brugge, Okereke has failed to hit the form he had during his time with Spezia. The 26-year-old will be hoping to regain his form during his loan spell in Turin. 

The door for Okereke to join Torino became open after the club failed to land long-term target Rafa Mir from Sevilla.
