Arsenal and Everton prepared to test Torino resolve with Izzo offers

Arsenal and Everton are prepared to test Torino's resolve with offers for Armando Izzo.

Izzo, 27, was a star in the centre of defence for the Turin club, notching up 37 appearances.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, both Arsenal and Everton are willing to pay €25m for the Italy international.

Despite declaring his contentment at Torino, Izzo admitted earlier this week that he was happy being courted by clubs.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: "For now I'm happy. Everyone likes to be courted.

"I have four years left on my contract at Torino, and I want to show my worth: I don't like just being called a good player. I'm worth more."

"Among Italian defenders, other than [Giorgio] Chiellini, I don't see others stronger or more determined than I am. I'm honoured to wear Torino's shirt and I will spill blood until the last day I wear it."
