Remember Gedson Fernandes? Tottenham Hotspur may not, but Torino apparently does, according to DiMarzio. The Italian club has reportedly inquired about signing the midfielder.

The deal with Torino would most likely be a loan from Benfica, which would cancel the loan deal Gedson signed with Spurs that expires at the end of the 2020-21 season. Torino is under new leadership after hiring manager Davide Nicola this week, and per DiMarzio is looking to reinforce its midfield.

Whether or not the move to Torino pans out, word that Gedson’s loan at Spurs may end early has been making the rounds for a little while. Last month, both the Evening Standard and Portugal’s O Jogo reported that Gedson’s Spurs career may end by canceling the loan, making it a very likely event at some point this month.

Gedson played 12 games last season after joining in January, but was left out of both the Premier League and Europa League squads for the start of this season. He has only played twice this season, in the team’s Carabao Cup win over Chelsea in September and in the FA Cup win over Marine earlier this month.
