It may sound surprising but coming from Italian outlet Tuttosport it must be taken seriously.
Nicolas Nkoulou is a subject of transfer speculation related to a number of English Premier League outfits including Manchester United.
According to reports United are keenly studying the situation of the 30-year Cameroonian sweeper at Torino.
Nkoulou’s contract at the Italian Club runs till June 2021 after which he will be available as a free agent.
It is surely for this reason that Manchester United, Burnley and Leeds United amongst other Premier League outfit are reportedly interested in the 2017 AFCON who has represented a number of Clubs including Olympique Lyonnais, AS Monaco amongst others.
The Kadji Sports Academy graduate hasn’t had consistent football under his belt this season at Torino.
He has accumulated just games in all competitions, as his side struggles stay above the relegation zone, just over midway through the current Italian Serie A campaign.
The modern-day defender with great ability in playing out from the back or sticking in a foot like the old-fashioned center-half would do, has been a mainstay in the last three seasons at Torino.
Since the defender’s sort of ‘one hit wonder’ narrative, European giants have been breathing down the neck of Torino,including the English trinity of Manchester United, Leeds United and Burnley now.
He joined Torino on loan in August 2017 and made the deal permanent with a cash in of £3.1 Million for Olympique Lyonnais after an impressive first season.
Transfermarkt have it that, the defender is attached to Torino till the next summer but could leave before then at £11 Million.
Nkoulou has made 126 appearances for the club and scored four goals.
The English trinity will have to display their financial muscles for only the highest offer to the player is likely to get the former AS Monaco man out of the Stadio Grande Torino, should he decide to move at the end of his contract.
