According to a report in La Stampa (as relayed by TuttoMercatoWeb), Tottenham Hotspur are at the front of the queue of clubs who are interested in signing Torino striker Andrea Belotti in the summer. 

Belotti has been one of the most consistent strikers in the Serie A since moving to Turin in 2015. 

It was reported last summer that Tottenham had an offer of around €50m (£46.3m) rejected by Torino for the striker with the club’s sporting director Davide Vagnati also confirming Spurs’ approach.

Although Torino are having a difficult season, currently sitting just one point clear of the drop zone, Belotti has continued to shine for Davide Nicola’s side, scoring 11 goals and registering six assists in 20 league games so far this campaign. 

La Stampa claim that Tottenham are eyeing a move for the Italian international, with the North London club believing that the striker is well suited to the Premier League. 

Belotti’s current deal with Torino runs out in the summer of 2022 and the report suggests that the striker will have to sign a new deal before end of the season if he is to stay at the club.

However, it is alleged that a new contract is currently not on the agenda with the striker instead focused on playing well for the remainder of the campaign.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Of all the names we were linked with during the summer transfer window, Belotti is the one that I was most excited by. Given his characteristics, he could partner Kane upfront or lead the line on his own if the England captain needs a rest. 

While Vinicius has shown glimpses of quality, I cannot see the club taking up the £40.9m option to sign him permanently. With both Belotti and Ings having less than 18 months left on their contracts, it would be a real coup if we manage to land one of those two
