Torino are reportedly in talks with Sierra Leonean-born Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah (pictured).

The Granata are reconstructing their squad under new Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, as Giampiero Ventura left to take the Italy job.

The 21-year-old has spent last season on loan at Napoli and played just nine times during 12 months.

Sky Sport Italia and Calcionews24 claim Torino’s first target for midfield is the England Under-21 international Chalobah, who is a product of the Chelsea youth system.

Chalobah was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and still eligible to play for his country of birth.

He made his England under-16 debut at the age of 13 in October 2008, and his England under-17 debut aged 14 in July 2009, before winning the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship.

The 6 ft 1-inch midfielder has been struggling to hold on to a regular first team football at Chelsea and has had spells with Watford, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Reading before he was again sent on a season-long loan from Chelsea on 1 September 2015 to Napoli.
