Emanuele Giaccherini’s future at Sunderland has come into the spotlight again after his goal for Italy against Belgium.

The Italy international had looked a certainty to move on this summer after a difficult time at the club since his move to the Stadium of Light from Juventus in the summer of 2013.

He has struggled on Wearside, scoring just four goals in 32 Premier League appearances.

But that was before his starring role for the Azzurri at Euro 2016 in their win over Belgium where he brilliantly controlled a pass from Leonardo Bonucci before stroking the ball past Thibaut Courtois to give his country the lead.

Sunderland had been looking for just £2million to sell the 31-year-old but more performances like the one on Monday and that price will almost certainly go up.

Giaccherini spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Bologna, who are believed to be keen to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis, but it appears Torino also want to land him.
