Torino are unlikely to make a move for Manchester City striker Rolando Bianchi in the January transfer window, according to club president Urbano Cairo.

The Serie A strugglers have scored just 15 goals in 17 league games this season and are set to boost their attacking options before the window closes on January 31.

Bianchi, an £8.8 million signing from Reggina last summer, has failed to settle at City but Cairo is not optimistic of luring the 24-year-old, or Shakhtar Donetsk forward Cristiano Lucarelli, to the Granata club, saying: "We are waiting to see if we can sign a player that will cover one of the weaknesses this team has."
