According to a report from Football Italia, AS Roma will look to sign Torino forward Andrea Belotti.
The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Belotti has been at Torino since 2015 when he joined from Palermo. The 27-year-old’s contract at Torino is set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The forward banged in 12 goals and provided 6 assists in 28 matches this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Italy. As a member of Italy national football team, Andrea Belotti won 32 caps and he scored 11 goals.
Andrea Belotti is set to be a man in demand in the summer transfer window, with a host of clubs queuing up to pursue his signature.
Paulo Fonseca wants to sign a new forward and Belotti is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Italy international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Fonseca wants to target in the summer transfer window.
AS Roma are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The 27-year-old is a dynamic forward, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Paulo Fonseca’s side.
, “Roma are searching for a new striker this summer and sporting director Tiago Pinto has reportedly targeted Torino forward Andrea Belotti. The Giallorossi are looking for a new centre-forward who could potentially replace Bosnia international Edin Dzeko. The veteran’s future is uncertain, and he will have to discuss with the club after the current campaign, but Il Corriere dello Sport claims Roma have started looking for a proven attacker. Roma have an option to buy Borja Mayoral for €15m this summer or extend his loan until June 2022 with an option to buy for €20m next year. The newspaper claims the Giallorossi have decided to renew the loan and wait until next year, with Tiago Pinto also looking at the international market. The report reveals he has identified the Granata captain Belotti as the perfect fit for La Lupa, but Milan are also monitoring the Italy international’s situation in Turin. Belotti’s contract with Torino expires in June 2022 and he has not negotiated a renewal with patron Urbano Cairo, who thus could be forced to cash in this summer. Torino are fighting for safety in Serie A and will wait until the end of the season to discuss with the striker, but Il Corriere dello Sport claims Roma is one of the preferred solutions for Belotti. The 27-year-old is looking for a leap to a big club and Roma have asked about his availability, but in addition to Milan, there are also reports of interest from Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Everton and Lyon.”
