The 22-year-old DLP collected 12 appearances this year, but mostly at the beginning of the season, then he was regularly benched. The arrival of Lodi definitely shuts the doors of the starting XI for him, so he decided to move on.
Tachtsidis come from a really bad one and a half season: the duel with De Rossi at Roma under Zeman’s tenure damaged him and he failed to impress in Sicily. Anyway, he was a very brilliant prospect while at Hellas Verona.
Ventura hopes that Tachtsidis can re-find the confidence and be a serviceable addition in a role where Torino currently only has Giuseppe Vives, who’s having a great year, but it’s still Giuseppe Vives.
