Armando Izzo (born 2 March 1992) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a centre back for Torino.

Club career
Born in Naples, Izzo began his youth career with hometown's Napoli, and was subsequently loaned to Triestina.

On 31 January 2012 Izzo joined Lega Pro side Avellino in a co-ownership deal, after his previous club was bankrupt.

On 24 August 2013 Arini made his Serie B debut, starting in a 2–1 home success over Novara; his first goal came on 7 March of the following year, in a 1–0 success at Empoli.

On 14 July 2014, Izzo moved to the top-flight side Genoa after playing for a two-and-a-half year with team Avellino. On 5 October 2014 made his Serie A debut, substituting Maxime Lestienne in a 2–1 away success over Parma.

On 4 July 2018, he signed a contract with Torino.

International career
On 5 November 2016, Izzo was called up to the senior squad for the first time for 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualification match against Liechtenstein and friendly match against Germany.

Match-fixing
On 23 May 2016, Izzo, along with midfielders Luca Pini and Francesco Millesi, was put under investigation by the anti-mafia police department in Naples (DDA) after being accused of being directly involved with a Camorra clan based in Secondigliano in altering the results of the Serie B matches Modena–Avellino (1–0) from 17 March 2014, and Avellino–Reggina (3–0) from 25 May 2014. On 3 March 2017, the Italian Football Federation's prosecutor asked for Izzo to be suspended for six years, also requesting that collateral estoppel be applied, and demanded that he should receive a €20,000 fine. On 12 April, he received an 18-month ban from football and was also fined €50,000. On 19 May his ban was reduced to six months.
