Torino president Urbano Cairo is inching closer to landing Inter Milan attacker Alvaro Recoba.

Cairo has had an agreement with Inter president Massimo Moratti over signing Recoba, but had yet to convince the player about moving to Turin.

Tgcom says Cairo's hand has strengthened in the last 48 hours as rivals Atletico Madrid and Napoli have both cooled their interest in the Uruguayan.

"Recoba is a player who everyone would like in their team," said Cairo over the weekend.
