Torino have reportedly opened talks with Chelsea over taking youngster Nathaniel Chalobah on loan for the season.
The 21-year-old has only recently brought the curtain down on a loan spell at Napoli, where he made just nine appearances for the Serie A giants during his 12 months with the club.
Despite his lack of game time, the England Under-21 international is said to have enjoyed his time in Italy and would be interested in returning for the 2016/17 campaign.
While Napoli are not keen to have him back, reports in Italy claim Torino have made contact with Chelsea to enquiry about whether they could take Chalobah on a season-long loan.
The Blues are believed to be weighing up the offer for the midfielder and are likely to wait until new boss Antonio Conte has watched the defensive midfielder in person during pre-season before making a final decision.
Chalobah has yet to make a senior appearance for Chelsea and has already spent time on loan with six different clubs.
