The 21-year-old joins the Serie A outfit on a loan deal until the end of the season, with a permanent option.
â€śTorino have been following me for some time, I hope to do well,â€ť he said. â€śI know this is a company that believes in young people and this is very important.
â€śIn Italy I know that I can learn a lot, especially in the ability to be in the field, because the tactics and organisation of play are essential.
â€śI really want to experience this new experience to the full, thanks to all the Taurus for choosing me: now it’s my turn, I can not wait to get started.â€ť
6pm: Paul Pogba would be better off at rivals Manchester City, says BBC Sport pundit Andy Townsend.
â€śI donâ€™t subscribe to any of the other guys, particularly ex-midfield players as well, that have all heavily criticised him,â€ť Townsend said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
â€śI think heâ€™s an outstanding player and Iâ€™ve said that from day one.
â€śI just think the club heâ€™s playing at and the way they play, doesnâ€™t suit him.
â€śIf he was across the road in a light blue shirt, my goodness, Iâ€™m telling you now he would be better than he is.â€ť
