Taking to Twitter, reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano has shared the latest on Torino striker Andrea Belotti in what could be a possible boost for West Ham United.
The Lowdown: West Ham eye move…
As reported, West Ham and new head of recruitment Rob Newman are eyeing a move for the Italy international in the Irons’ continued search for a back up striker.
WestHamFans.org, as shown on NewsNow, believe that the club are lining up a ‘sensational’ swoop for the 27-year-old amid his contract dispute at Torino.
Now, taking to social media, Romano has shared the latest on Belotti in what could be a boost to West Ham’s chances.
The Latest: Romano makes claim…
Indeed, the Italian journalist says Torino’s captain has not yet accepted the last proposal to extend his current deal.
Belotti’s contract expires in 2022, meaning he could leave for free next summer, and Romano says the chances of him doing so are real.
“Andrea Belotti has chances to leave Torino as free agent next summer, as things stand now,” he explained on Twitter.
“He’s out of contract in June 2022 and he has not accepted yet last Torino proposal to extend current deal.”
The Verdict: Time to swoop?
If the Serie A forward continues to stall on fresh terms and opts to leave for free next summer, there is now question that West Ham should indeed take advantage.
As well as this, Belotti is experienced in finding the back of the net, having racked up 99 goals and 26 assists in 250 Italian top flight appearances (Transfermarkt).
On a free deal, this is an absolute no brainer.
