Arsenal have submitted a £43.2 million bid for Torino striker Andrea Belotti, according to reports in Italy.
Tuttosport claim that the Serie A club have started to receive offers for the 23-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window.
And Arsenal and Napoli have tested the water with €50m (£43.2m) bids.
The Italy international signed a new contract earlier this term, which includes a €100m (£86.5m) buyout clause that applies to foreign clubs.
Earlier this month, Belotti scored a hat-trick in eight minutes to secure a 3-1 victory over Palermo, and Torino’s president, Urbano Cairo, suggested the club will not accept offers lower than the striker’s buyout clause. “If I had to insert a figure in his contract right now I would go for €150 million,” Cairo told Sky Sport. “He scored three more crazy goals, one even better than the other.
“We will have to wait and see whether a team is willing to pay €100 million. I hope not because I want to keep him here. We are just enjoying him and his goals for now.” #arsenal #transfer #rumour #belotti #prince_obi_arsenal
