Capped 17 times, Sirigu joined PSG from Palermo in 2011 and spent last season on loan to Spanish clubs Sevilla and relegated Osasuna.

The 30-year-old was first-choice goalkeeper in his first four seasons at PSG but in 2015/2016 he made only three league appearances after falling behind Kevin Trapp in the pecking order.

“The club (Torino) and the president made me feel important and I thank them for that,” said Sirigu on club website torinofc.it.

Torino finished ninth in Italy’s top division last season.
