Quagliarella leaves Juve for Torino

Juventus' new head coach Massimiliano Allegri will have to keep his star players if they're to add to the three Serie A titles they've won in as many years.

Fabio Quagliarella is set to leave Juventus to return to Torino, the club where he began his professional career.

Quagliarella, 31, will move for a three million euro fee on a three-year deal on Friday, according to Tuttosport.

The man who launched his career with Torino in Serie B in 2005, Ezio Rossi, says Quagliarella is just what Torino need, and likened the striker to the man he will replace in the Toro attack, Ciro Immobile.

Fabio Quagliarella is set to sign a three-year deal with Torino.

"They are both quite similar," he told the club's official website. "He makes the same kind of runs as a striker and has a powerful shot. And knowing him like I do, I think he will still have the very same desire even today, at the age of 30.

Torino will also find out their opponents in the third qualifying round of the Europa League on Friday.
