AC Milan are one of five teams readying a bid to sign Torino star Andrea Belotti this summer, according to a report.
Milan have of course been linked with a move for the forward before, with reports in 2018 stating that they saw a bid of €50m plus Patrick Cutrone rejected, but this summer may represent a better time to sign the boyhood Milanista.
According to the paper edition of La Repubblica on Sunday (as cited by Football Italia), Milan are ‘preparing a summer bid’ for Belotti along with Napoli, Fiorentina, Everton and Atletico Madrid.
The 26-year-old’s contract is due to expire in June 2022 and he does not seem willing to sign a renewal, meaning he is likely looking to test himself at a big club before it is too late.
There is a €100m release clause built into his contract but it is valid only for clubs outside of Italy, and the report adds that the Granata are demanding €50m for the forward, who has 15 goals in 31 competitive appearances this season.
Fiorentina have put forward an offer of €40m already, and Belotti’s grandmother confirmed La Viola’s approach, but Napoli could be favourites as Torino already owe them €20m for Simone Verdi, while Andrea Petagna ‘could be included as part of the deal’.
