Premier League club linked with Torino's Belotti

Torino have reportedly received bids for their star forward Andrea Belotti, with Tottenham Hotspur being the main club linked with his signature.


According to Sky Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Torino have been approached for the loan signing of Belotti from Spurs, with the option to sign the Italian later on for £46.3 million.


However, Torino have rejected this offer, as they would only be ready to sell Belotti for a definitive sale, not for a loan-to-buy deal.


Torino are ready to sell Belotti, as long as the transfer offer made is respectable and that it is a permanent sale, not a loan.


Jose Mourinho desperately wants a backup striker for Harry Kane, who spent a large part of last season out injured, and Belotti seems like the right man, given his incredible record in Italian football.


Throughout the seasons, Belotti has managed 92 goals in 192 appearances for Torino, and has scored consistently over numerous seasons.


The 26-year-old is extremely strong and can hold up the ball very well, offering similar attributes to Harry Kane, with both of them being clinical finishers.


The question remains, will Belotti want to move to Spurs knowing that he is not a guaranteed starter?


There are plenty of other clubs interested in Belotti's signature, one of whom being AC Milan, who are looking to find a long-term replacement for the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who penned a new one-year deal at the club earlier this summer.


Last season, Belotti had an incredible season, scoring 22 goals in all competitions and providing four assists in 44 games.
