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 £8.8million 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 club.
'We are waiting to see if we can sign a player that will cover one of the weaknesses this team has,' said Cairo.
'There is the possibility of strengthening our attacking line but Lucarelli and Bianchi will involve extremely complex negotiations and we don't want to mislead our fans.'
Torino are 15th in the 20-team league, just three points off the relegation zone.
