West Ham United may have to face competition in the race to sign Frederik Alves.
The Silkeborg youngster is a key target for David Moyes' team.
Silkeborg said on November 4 that he can leave his club in January, which many speculated to mean West Ham had secured a deal.
But the interest of Torino means there may still be a battle to secure the player's signature.
The Dane is highly rated in Europe and would provide squad depth in defence for Moyes at West Ham.
