    Andrea Belotti

    Full name Andrea Belotti
    Date of birth 20 December 1993 (age 23)
    Place of birth Calcinate, Italy
    Height 1.81 m (5 ft 11 1⁄2 in)[1]
    Playing position Striker
    Current team Torino
    ----------------------------------------
    Absent from Torino's kit launch. Looks like he's probably off, with AC Milan and Chelsea the 2 most likely destinations. I don't think Chelsea will go for him, £88m for a striker who has only had 1 top season, meanwhile Milan have stated they will sign one of Auba/Belotti/Morata this window. Personally has been my first choice to replace Costa since about Feb/March, but I totally get why Chelsea won't buy him. I think he's the most like-for-like replacement for Costa, minus the bad temper.

    I think one of Auba or Bellotti will go to Chelsea, and the other to Milan, will be interesting to see who ends up where though.

    He is the kind of striker I would be scared shitless to confront as a defender. Ridiculously well-built, that strength + pace + venomous shot combo is frightening.

    Chelsea must sign him. With reports claiming Morata is about to sign for Milan, and Auba isn't what we need, Belotti is all that's left. SIGN SIGN SIGN

    And Morata?

    I think Auba will go to Chelsea, Morata to Milan and Belotti will stay in Torino because of his high price.

    And Morata, Lukaku, Higuain, Aubameyang, Aguero... They are linked with almost every striker. I think Conte really wants Belotti but Chelsea probably want a "bigger" star.

    Barca should go after this kid. A 32 goal season at the age of 23 is ridiculous.

    There were a lot of rumors in march/april, but they seem to have died down. I wonder how much he would cost in this post-neymar market

    Doesn't he have a 100M release clause and Torino doesn't want to sell him for anything less? So unless he'll renew his contract with higher or no clause included I think his price is known.

    Don't think he's what we need though. He can't play on the wings (or can he?), he wouldn't take Suarez's place in best XI (and Suarez is not going anywhere any time soon) and he's too expensive to be a bench/rotational player.

    And well, he's Italian who historically doesn't work out well in Barēa and La Liga in general (with some exceptions).

    I think that was obvious so I didn't mention that.

    Might be a potential Suarez replacement 2-3 years down the line as long as he doesn't join a mega rich club.

    He's an interesting player.

    I didn't watch Belotti enough but I would like Dolberg as Suarez replacement. Of course he's apparently on his way to Monaco if/when they sell Mbappe so his price will probably be around 150M in 2-3 years.
