Paranaense have been seeking a permanent manager since the sacking of Paulo Turra in June. Wesley Carvalho filled the role on an interim basis for the second half of the 2023 Brazilian top-flight season.

Torrent has been out of work since parting ways with Galatasaray in June 2022 amid a poor run of results. The 61-year-old had an ill-fated spell as head coach of Paranaense’s Brazilian rivals Flamengo in 2020.
