Italian forward Andrea Belotti could be on the verge of a move away from Torino, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham keeping a close eye on him.
According to Tuttosport, Andrea Belotti is facing an uncertain future at the club, as his current contract in Turin expires at the end of the season. It would make him a free agent in the summer, thus putting clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on red alert.
Belotti is primarily targeted by Inter Milan, though, as the Nerazzurri hope to find a replacement for either Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku, with the former Manchester United striker now being linked with a return to Chelsea.
Either way, suitors like Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester Untied among others believe that Belotti does have what it takes to become a star asset, having enjoyed immense success during his time at Torino.
One of the most things that makes the Italian international such an appealing target is his vast experience at the highest level of football. Since joining Torino in 2015, the forward has made 220 competitive appearances for the club, during which, he has netted more than 100 goals while also registering 25 assists.
Belotti’s more robust style of play, coupled with his work ethic make him quite similar to someone like Edinson Cavani. It is quite convenient for one of the interested parties in Manchester United, who are scouring the market for a long-term replacement for Cavani himself.
Chelsea, too, are preparing for life without Olivier Giroud, who is set to leave the club as a free agent in the summer. Someone like Belotti could be an ideal replacement as the Italian can offer that physical presence, along with his aggression and experience, making him a tailor-made fit for the Premier League.
Another option for the 27-year-old could be a switch to Tottenham Hotspur, who are keeping an eye on several top-class attackers in light of the recent cloud of uncertainty regarding Harry Kane’s long-term future at the club.
The English international has been most recently linked with a move to FC Barcelona and a potential departure will prompt Spurs to sign a new replacement. Belotti’s style of play could be ideally suited inJose Mourinho’s tactical setup as he can not only offer productivity but can also make himself a threat from set-pieces using his aerial prowess.
Perhaps most importantly, Belotti’s expiring contract means the Italian international could be a financially viable target, not just for Tottenham but also Chelsea and Manchester United, in this financial climate that has had a drastic impact on the transfer market.
