Torino are reportedly working on a contract extension for Alessio Cerci as an attempt to prevent the winger from leaving them during the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old, whose current deal with the Granata is set to expire in June 2016, has been linked with a possible move to several clubs including Roma, Arsenal and Manchester United as of late, but it seems Toro president Urbano Cairo is willing to make some adjustments to the winger’s contract in hopes of convincing him to remain with the Italian club next season.

According to Tuttosport, Torino are in the middle of preparing a new deal for the Italian international that would include added time to his existing agreement plus a wage increase, though specific details on the new contract are yet to be known.

However, if Cerci is to be sold to another club this summer, Cairo has insisted that it will be for no less than €20 million.

The former Roma man provided 13 goals and 12 assists in his 37 Serie A appearances for Torino last term.
