According to a report from La Stampa, via TUTTOmercatoWEB, Tottenham are readying a new and improved offer to sign Torino captain and talismanic striker Andrea Belotti this summer after having their first loan-to-buy bid rejected – with Spurs clearly not done following huge Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale developments.
Belotti, who bagged 16 Serie A goals last season and 22 in all competitions for the Italian club (Transfermarkt), will reportedly cost Spurs a huge fee if they’re to try and get a deal done – especially after their initial loan offer for the season with a £46.2 million option-to-buy next year was rejected.
Now, as per this update, Spurs will come back in for the Italy international with a new and improved offer exceeding their original – with the club still hunting for a prolific attacker who can provide an alternative option to Harry Kane.
Who should Spurs sign after Bale and Reguilon?
Over the last day, deals for both Sergio Reguilon and Spurs icon Gareth Bale have accelerated with football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold claiming Daniel Levy will not be done there.
The Lilywhites still need to bring in a forward despite all the excitement surrounding Reguilon and Bale in particular, and Gold also claims that a centre-back remains on the agenda.
As this report claims, if Levy and co want to land Belotti, they will need to push the boat out and make an improvement on their initial loan-to-buy offer – and the Italian news outlet claims that is exactly what Tottenham intend to do.
Whether or not Spurs are eventually able to land the 26-year-old remains to be seen, but this could be an exciting end to the window for supporters.
