Torino’s in-form striker Andrea Belotti is one of the hottest players in the transfer rumours today, and this is all because of his exploits in front of goal.

The 23-year-old has scored 25 goals in 31 appearances in Serie A so far this term, and his form has sparked interest from many top clubs across Europe, with his release clause set at £100 million.

The Italy international has been targeted by Chelsea and Manchester United according to reports, and he was also targeted by Arsenal last summer and Torino claim they turned down a £56 million bid for the forward from the Gunners.

United opened preliminary talks with Belotti earlier this week and are willing to pay up to £74 million for the forward in place of the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, Daily Mail claim that the Torino striker will favour a move to London, making Chelsea and Arsenal favourites for his signature.
