(Reuters) - Torino midfielder Marco Benassi has joined Fiorentina on a permanent move, both clubs said on Wednesday (torinofc.it; it.violachannel.tv).

Benassi made his professional debut in 2013. He had been a youth player at Inter Milan and joined Fiorentina from there three years ago.

The Florentine club said that the 22-year-old will undergo a medical on Thursday and sign a five-year contract with the club.

Benassi, who made 28 league appearances and scored five goals, is the captain of Italy U21 and has 27 caps for the team.
