Izzo’s club snub Unai

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Manchester United - BY NEIL FISSLER

AR­SE­NAL will be dealt a blow with Torino ready to block the sale of Italy’s highly-rated cen­tral de­fender Ar­mando Izzo.

Gun­ners boss Unai Emery is a big fan of Izzo, 27, and would like to see him in north Lon­don.

Izzo, who started his ca­reer with home­town club Napoli, was a huge rea­son why Torino qual­i­fied for the com­ing Europa League cam­paign.

Emery had Izzo watched a num­ber of times last sea­son and was weigh­ing up mak­ing an of­fer as he looks to re­build his de­fence this sum­mer.

But Torino are ready to turn down any of­fers for Izzo, who has also been tracked by Ever­ton, and will of­fer him a new deal.
