According to WestHamFans.Org, as shown on NewsNow, a claim has emerged involving the Hammers and a possible move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
The Lowdown: West Ham in striker chase…
Ever since the January window, West Ham have been attempting to land a forward as they seek back up to star striker Michail Antonio.
Now, a report has claimed that West Ham have another one in their sights.
The Latest: West Ham plot Belotti move…
As per WestHamFans.Org, the Irons and new head of recruitment Rob Newman are ‘lining up’ a ‘sensational’ deal for Italy international Belotti.
The 27-year-old would have cost around £30 million last season but that market value has now ‘plummeted’ due to his contract expiring in 2022.
West Ham could feasibly negotiate a pre-contract in January after they made ‘tentative steps’ to try and sign him in the last transfer window.
The Verdict: Great option…
Signing Belotti either for free next summer or on a cut price move in January could certainly be a masterstroke given he is an experienced goal-getter and 39-cap international – especially as a mere back-up to Antonio.
The Torino captain should, at the very least, be a target for West Ham.
