Lille are scouting Torino defender Lyanco

Gianluca di Marzio reports that Ligue 1 side Lille spent Saturday afternoon scouting 23-year-old Brazilian-Serbian central defender Lyanco during Torino’s 4-1 defeat to Juventus.

The Italian journalist insists that the youngster is on Les Dogues’ shortlist to replace the departing Brazilian defender Gabriel, having played just 12 matches for his current side so far this season.

Despite earning a contract extension with Torino a year ago, it looks very possible that the defensive rock will depart.

No formal offer from LOSC so far, just a name of their shortlist for now…
