TMW: Milan pushing to sign two strikers including Italy U21 international

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are currently leading the race to sign Andrea Belotti on a free transfer, according to the latest from one journalist.

In an editorial for TMW, Niccolo Ceccarini writes that Torino president Urbano Cairo has made it clear that Belotti will not renew his deal and therefore new scenarios are opening up ahead of the upcoming windows.

His contract expires in June 2022 and a free transfer is very likely at this point even though Torino will try to sell him in the winter so as to get some kind of recompense, but it is very difficult to imagine that a club will make an offer. Milan are ahead at the moment in the race to land him on a free transfer, but Inter may also swoop in as they will have to replace Alexis Sanchez.

Belotti is also attracting interest from Fiorentina, while Milan are keeping another option open as the journalist adds that the Rossoneri have begun to raise the pressure also for Lorenzo Lucca, who is top scorer in Serie B having fired Pisa to first place.

  1. Get both, loan lucca back for the remaining season and maybe one on top of that if they gets a promotion. Such deal should be enticing for pisa as they would still be able to reinforce their squad while keeping the player for the time being in their attempts to get promoted. This should also make it a cheaper deal for us while the player keeps developing with them and his value increases so even in the scenario that we wont keep him we should still be able to capitalize on a future sale.
    Belotti should be brought in as well and preferably in january but if not then certainly in july.

  2. This is incredibly perfect for us. Please do both. Belotti ready now, Giroud will also still be here. Then we’ll own both Lucca and Colombo who are looking loke excellent prospects and they have a different style to them both for the future. Finally, this is incredibly financially smart as these moves are very inexpensive. Belotti free, Lucca not too expensive yet (but his price will skyrocket soon so now is the time).

  3. If Belotti is free why not I guess – but not if it prevents us from going after a better player (ex. Vlahovic) IMO…Belotti is solid for league play but I don’t think he’s world class and a true difference maker especially in CL. He never impressed with the national team and I’m not sure if he will be able to produce at a bigger club. Reminds me of a Borriello or Gilardino….I hope I’m wrong and perhaps a bit harsh but I’d prefer we aim for higher quality if our budget allows. If it doesn’t then sure if he’s free why not, but just think there are better options for next season. I’d rather try for Icardi or Vlahovic than Belotti…but again- depends on our budget. If he’s all we can afford than so be it. I’m not high on Columbo and didn’t we just sign Pellegri – is the same as Lucca? These are Serie B players so let’s temper expectations. We’ve seen players like this before. Paloschi, Cutrone, seems like Pellegri could be another….lots of promise but never pan out. Hope it’s different with these kids and hope I’m wrong. But just my humble opinion

  4. A Big fan of Belloti… I feel with Diaz playing behind him, we can see this best. And for Lucca, just like Adli, we can buy then loan back( future use). Having Belloti, Giroud, Pellegri as our #9 options will be great… I guess Ibra will be hanging his boot at end of season(injury issues), but if not how can we accommodate Ibra, Giroud and Belloti all at same time.
