Torino president Urbano Cairo admits they must buy again before the market shuts.
"We are in a precarious position," said a visibly worried Cairo. "But this really is the moment when we need to have more courage.
"We do have the players to get out of this situation. In the next 10 days, [Rino] Foschi [Torino's director of sport] will do everything to improve the team in the areas that require attention.
"Foschi continues to work," he added. "We have five days to determine who comes and who goes in the market. I repeat Foschi is working and working well."
