This season seems to be Andrea Belotti’s last time in Torino’s uniform. El Toro have offered a new contract, but Belotti reportedly refused because he wanted to leave.
Several big clubs began to line up to get the services of the Italian national team striker. Here are five clubs that have the potential to become the 27-year-old player’s destination. Where will he land?
AC Milan : Some reports say that AC Milan is the club with the most potential to bring in Andrea Belotti next season. The player is even rumored to have asked his agent to make this transfer happen. AC Milan has been eyeing the player since last season.
He could be the best option as a successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is likely to hang up his boots soon. The Swedish striker is 40 years old and his physical condition is starting to decline, although he still makes a big contribution to the Milan club.
Inter Milan : Inter Milan is likely to be left by Alexis Sanchez in the upcoming transfer market. The Chilean reportedly wants to leave the Nerazurri because he rarely gets playing time in the Simone Inzaghi era. Instead, Inter Milan are targeting Andrea Belotti to be brought in next season.
He is considered to be able to sharpen Inter Milan’s attack line which is currently filled with Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez. The status of the player who is a free transfer also makes Inter Milan insistent because the club’s financial condition is not yet stable.
Arsenal : One of Arsenal’s problems this season is their blunt attack line. From 12 EPL matches, they were only able to score 13 goals. On the other hand, they will lose Alexandre Lacazette, whose contract expires in the summer of 2022. The Gunnners will reportedly hunt for Belotti as a solution to the problem.
Reported by Football London, Arsenal are preparing to offer a pre-contract next January to the Torino striker. This could be an attractive option for Belotti to experience the atmosphere of a new competition, the Premier League.
West Ham United : Arsenal are not the only English club interested in Belotti. West Ham United are also reportedly interested in signing the Torino striker. They need a sharp striker as a duo Michail Antonio. This season, The Hammers appeared very impressive by competing in the top four positions.
The presence of a striker like Belotti can provide a new quality in their attack line to be more competitive next season. Moreover, they have the potential to appear in European competition next season, one thing that could tempt Belotti to accept the Hammers’ offer .
