West Ham United could revisit their interest in Torino striker Andrea Belotti, according to ExWHUEmployee.
The Irons have apparently held an interest in Belotti in the past, and a move could be explored once again.
Belotti has fired in 105 goals and provided 28 assists in 228 all-time appearances for Torino.
Last season, the 27-year-old scored 13 for a side that only avoided relegation to Serie B by four points.
His performances earned him a call-up to the Italy squad for the European Championships earlier in the summer.
Belotti only started one match for the eventual winners – the Group A finale against Wales. By that point, Italy had secured passage to the Round of 16.
Belotti one of many candidates for West Ham?
With only a year remaining on his contract, he’s valued at £31.5million by Transfermarkt, but Belotti is by no means the only striker with whom the Hammers have been linked.
They’re said to be keen on a move for Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, bumped further down the pecking order by Romelu Lukaku’s impending arrival (via Daily Mail) and have apparently opened preliminary talks with Liverpool over Divock Origi (via Football Insider).
