As the summer transfer window comes closer and closer Arsenal are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
As per British and Italian media, Arsenal are linked with fresh move for Andrea Belotti.
The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Italy international joined Torino from Palermo for a fee in the region of 8.4 million euros in August 2015. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
The former Palermo ace bagged 13 goals and provided six assists in 35 appearances last season.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Italy. His record for Italy is also impressive. Belotti has scored 12 goals in 39 matches for Italy at senior level.
The Italy international’s performances last season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new striker and Andrea Belotti is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The report claims that Arsenal manager has extensively scouted Belotti and is considering a move for the striker.
The Gunners are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Italy international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Arteta’s side.
According to the report, “Arsenal are plotting a late move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti. The Daily Mail says Arsenal are still in the market for a new striker and Torino’s Belotti is back on their radar. Belotti, 27, was linked with a move to north London earlier in the summer after impressing at the European Championships. Things had gone cold on a move for the Torino hitman, but the Gunners have reignited their interest.”
