Torino are making a move for Catania striker Maxi Lopez.

The Serie A new boys have opened talks for the ex-AC Milan centre-forward.

"We spoke about Maxi," agent Andrea D'Amico told Sky Sport Italia. "Torino are very interested in him, but the situation needs to be clarified and handled by Catania.

"The player is very popular on the market and it is only normal that teams are thinking about him. We are only at a very early stage, though, as the two clubs will have to reach an agreement first."
