Milan Join Race for Torino Marksman Andrea Belotti

As it seems extremely likely that the clinical goalscorer Andrea Belotti will leave I Granata at the end of this years campaign, Milan are determined to enter the stirring race for the Torino marksman.

As of right now, Pioli is extremely limited with the options he possesses within the front-line of the squad. Despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud’s impressive form throughout the first half of the season, both strikers possess the ages of 40 and 35 years old respectively, causing them to not be reliable as long-term prospects within the future of the club. Furthermore, Pietro Pellegrini’s arrival on loan from Monaco to Milan has been a significant failure as the young striker has not managed to score a goal in six Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri.

With the recent opening of the winter transfer window, Belotti is currently free to negotiate with other clubs in order to attempt obtaining a new opportunity. According to Sempre Milan (Via Calciomercato), reports are circulating around Torino that Urbano Cairo, the president of Torino, has claimed that the Italian international shows no desire of renewing his contract with I Granata as he aspires to seek a new challenge at a different club.

Despite his underwhelming form of only two goals in six appearances throughout this year’s campaign, Maldini is eager to lure the Italian striker to the San Siro on a free transfer for the next season. The former Milan legend firmly believes that the 28 year-old talisman can be a fundamental player in helping the Rossoneri obtain glory within the Campionato through the use of his immense explosiveness on the pitch, his outstanding tactical intelligence, and his remarkable goal-scoring instincts.

The thought of acquiring Belotti from Torino is not as easy as it seems as fellow Serie A teams Fiorentina and Napoli are also keen on obtaining the Italian international on a pre-contract deal. Despite the immense amount of competition Milan possess in securing Belotti’s signature, the Rossoneri have no intentions of pulling out of the race as they are extremely enthusiastic about the the idea of having the prolific striker play for the red and black of Milan under the lights of the San Siro.
