Italian football expert Conor Clancy believes that everyone in Europe should be looking at Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
According to TuttoMercatoWEB, La Liga champions Atletico Madrid have pulled out of a deal to sign the Italian striker, with Corriere dello Sport naming Tottenham as a club who are observing Belotti’s situation.
Belotti has been incredible for Torino, scoring 105 goals and providing 26 assists in 228 matches for the Serie A outfit. The Italian’s most prolific season in front of goal was in 2016/2017, where he scored 28 goals for Torino, and Conor Clancy believes that every club in Europe should be looking to sign him.
He told the Transfer Tavern: “I think everyone in Europe should be looking at Belotti, he’s fantastic. He’s not scoring as many goals now as he did, I think it was in 15/16 or 16/17, that was his big season and he finished top scorer in Serie A.
“He’s a striker who does everything, he defends, he fights, he battles, he’s captain for a reason.”
Belotti was also part of the Italy team that won Euro 2020 earlier in the summer, featuring in six of their matches, including the final against England.
Tottenham may need to enter the market for a striker should Harry Kane decide to move on from the football club. Journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that Kane is planning to return to training this week and his future is to be discussed with the club, with Tottenham aware of his desire to play UEFA Champions League football.
If Belotti can rekindle his form of a few years ago, when he scored 28 goals in a single season, he could be a brilliant attacking option for Spurs and, if Kane does stay, provide healthy competition amongst the attacking ranks at the club.
