Torino President Urbano Cairo has moved to stifle speculation linking Stefano Okaka with a move to the Italian club.

The wantaway forward has made no secret of his desire to leave Vicarage Road in search of regular first team football, and spoke glowingly of former Watford boss Walter Mazzarri on Monday.

With Mazzarri now in charge at Serie A side Torino, a move looked a distinct possibility.

However, Cairo has now distanced the Turin club with a move for the bustling centre-forward, insisting the presence of Andrea Bellotti and M’Baye Niang means Torino are well-stocked in attack.

“It is not a negotiation we have started, absolutely not,” he told an Italian radio station. “We have Bellotti and Niang can be an alternative.

“When you already have those options, I do not think you need to take an alternative player like him to make him play a few minutes.”
