More Suitors Approach Belotti but Roma Maintain Lead

Free agent striker Andrea Belotti has received further contractual proposals, but he remains determined to join Roma. The Giallorossi want to trim their attack before onboarding him, but they might be able to do it in short order.

As per Tuttomercatoweb, on top of Nice and Galatasaray, Wolverhampton and Southampton also touched base with the former Torino star. However, they don’t play in Europe, which is a sticking point for him. The Turkish club tabled the largest offer so far, but the Italian international isn’t keen on the destination. If that didn’t change, the Cimbom would go for PSG outcast Mauro Icardi.

The ambitious Aiglons, which signed Kasper Schmeichel and Aaron Ramsey, represent the biggest threat to Roma in the Belotti race. That would be the case especially if they advanced past the European Conference League playoffs. They lost one-nil away to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the first leg Thursday.

According to Corriere dello Sport, a recent call by José Mourinho convinced the center-forward to wait for the Giallorossi a little longer. They might put him under contract after offloading Felix Afena-Gyan and Justin Kluivert, but before sorting the future of Eldor Shomurodov. The youngster is in Cremonese, Sassuolo and Salernitana’s crosshairs, while the outcast is one step away from Fulham. Instead, the talks with Bologna for the Uzbek are stalling over the formula.

Our Take on Belotti Potentially Joining Roma

It may take a few more days, but the marriage is bound to happen, barring a surprising turn of events at this point. The capital club could certainly use a reliable backup for Tammy Abraham, and the two can partner as well, while it’s a little odd that he’s settling for a secondary role.
