Arsenal continue to be interested in Torino winger Alessio Cerci, along with fellow English Premier League clubs Southampton and QPR.

Torino know the Italy international is a wanted man and have slapped a non-negotiable €20m asking price on his head, something which is continuing to give his suitors pause for thought.

Cerci has also been chased by both AC Milan and Atletico Madrid, but neither side are prepared to lay €20m on the line for the Roma youth product.

As the end of the transfer window approaches, Arsenal, Southampton and QPR all remain keen on Cerci, according to Italian daily Tuttosport.


However, it is not yet clear whether Torino will agree to drop their asking price for Cerci or whether one of his suitors will lodge a €20m offer.


Torino snapped up the 27-year-old from Fiorentina in 2012.

He has flourished in Turin and won international recognition, collecting 13 caps for Italy since making his debut last year.
