Andrea Belotti Asks Torino To Sell Him To Bigger Club With AC Milan Eyeing £80M Swoop
Andrea Belotti has ordered Serie A club Torino to sell him as soon as possible, according to reports.
The Italy international has generated plenty of transfer talk before and during the summer window, with his 28-goal haul in 2016-17 raising his profile and attracting interest from all across Europe.
Earlier, Torino bosses had made it clear that they will not sell their most prized asset, even if clubs are ready to break the bank for securing the services of the Italian striker.

But according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, Torino are set to lose the battle as Belotti has made up his mind and wants to join a bigger club this summer.
Taking to Twitter he wrote; “Belotti has asked to Torino to go to bigger club. Now up to Chelsea and Milan to offer €90million.”
He believes that Torino would look to make huge profit on Belotti and both Chelsea and Milan will have to field a transfer bid of around £80m to sign the 23-year-old striker, who has drawn huge attention this summer after displaying incredible form last season.
The Serie A club have already roped in the likes of Andre Silva, Ricardo Rodriguez, Hakan Calhanoglu, Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie, Fabio Borini, Leonardo Bonucci and Lucas Bigila in an outstanding £160million spending spree so far this summer.
And now AC Milan have set their eyes on Belotti, as they continue to build a side that can challenge any top club in the upcoming season.
According to reports, Belotti prefers a move to Milan because he is excited by the vision and commitment of the new Chinese owners.
He has also been left out of Torino’s latest kit photoshoot and this has intensified rumours that the Italian hit-man is set to join a new club this summer.
