According to a report by Torino Granata, via West Ham Central, the Irons are now favourites to sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti and have the best chance out of all clubs interested – prompting many supporters to have their say on social media.
Indeed, as reported by the outlet, West Ham have entered pole position for Belotti and their chances of signing him could be further improved by finishing in a Europa League spot at the end of 2020/2021.
David Moyes’ men are in a hot race to qualify for Europe following a brilliant season, and this has apparently resulted in West Ham becoming favourites for Belotti among other suitors.
Flocking to this claim that West Ham are now favourites for his signature, many Irons erupted with their diverse takes on social media – find all of their best ones down below.

“This. This is the signing we want.”
“I don’t think we’ll get him, he’s been a Torino for years. But he is a Moyes type striker from what I can tell.”
