Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy eyeing Andrea Belotti swoop

Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy eyeing Andrea Belotti swoop - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Italian news outlet Tuttosport, via Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy are ‘constantly monitoring’ Andrea Belotti and his situation at Torino – coming amid the striker’s seemingly never-ending contract saga.

Levy eyeing Belotti swoop for Spurs

Belotti has been at the centre of disputes over a new deal in Turin for a while now, as Sport Witness relay, and the Serie A side could be forced to sell him this summer given his current contract expires in 2022.

Can you name all 10 of these obscure Tottenham signings? Let's get started! Who is this?

As per Tuttosport, there is a long list of clubs vying for the services of Belotti including Spurs – with Levy ‘constantly’ keeping tabs on the player.

Many top European sides, as a result, could compete with the Lilywhites for his signature – including the likes of Napoli, Roma, Fiorentina, Inter Milan, Lyon and ‘especially’ AC Milan.

The latter side, it is explained, have attracted Belotti’s ‘affection’ – which could put Milan in pole position.

Regardless, Tottenham allegedly continue to keep tabs as Levy ponders strengthening the squad this summer.

Transfer Tavern take

This update doesn’t mention his price tag with Transfermarkt rating him at around £36 million as an estimate, but even that value could be too steep for Spurs in this financial climate marred by coronavirus.

There is no doubting the Italy international’s pedigree at the very top level, having amassed 32 caps for his nation whilst scoring 28 Serie A goals over the last two seasons (WhoScored).

As well as this, he only just trails behind Lilywhites superstar Harry Kane for shots averaged per 90 – with the Englishman managing 3.9 domestically compared to Belotti’s 3.2.

He has also received no shortage of plaudits, including former boss Moreno Longo, who dubbed him ‘extraordinary’ last year (Football Italia).

Among his admirers at Tottenham is second choice shot stopper Joe Hart, with the 33-year-old once calling him ‘special’ during their time together at Torino (Gazzetta dello Sport via Gianluca Di Marzio).

Signing the forward as an alternative to Kane would be a dream for Spurs, but in this climate, Levy will have to pull out all the stops to get an affordable deal.
