The tricky winger, who can also play as a striker, has been linked with a move away from Turin for the past few months, with Premier League side Arsenal touted as potential suitors.

And club president Urbano Cairo has revealed that the 27-year-old Italian has expressed his desire to seek pastures new this transfer window.

"Cerci's sale is still possible and he has asked to leave," Cairo is quoted as telling Mediaset Premium.

"There are still four days left in the transfer window, so we will see what happens.

"I've given my word that we'll sell him if an adequate offer arrives.

"Arsenal? There are several options."

His manager Giampiero Ventura admitted that Cerci is not in the right frame of mind to feature for Il Toro, and is unsure what the future holds.

"Currently, Cerci does not have the right head to play," Ventura told a press conference.

"We wil wait for the end of the market and see."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
