    He'd be an option too.

    And who knows, perhaps we'll find someone within the club.

    Abel Ruiz is a very promising player.

    Damn, I would love to sign Belotti this window if we can't find a winger. He is like a young Suarez.

    We'd switch our formation to 4-3-1-2 with Messi behind Suarez and Belotti

    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 Barça and La Liga in general (with some exceptions).
    Funny how a 100M release clause was seen as really high a few months ago, but is a decent deal now. If Belotti can score 32 goals for a midtable club in a really defensive league like Serie A, what numbers could he hit while playing alongside Messi and Iniesta?

    It's a myth. It had the best goal per game average out of the top 5 leagues last season (2.96).

    There's a lot of exciting teams in Serie A for their attacking play.

    Probably worse, because he wouldn't be a starter here as long as we have Suarez.

    Ciro Immobile also scored that amount of goals for Torino a few years ago at the same age.

    You're right

    Immobile scored 23 goals in 34 games and had 3 assists
    Belotti scored 28 goals in 38 games and had 8 assists

    What happened to Immobile? He's playing good again though

    Playing outside of Serie A seem to have happened. Total flop in Bundesliga and La Liga.

    Would not hurt to secure a replacement before we actually have to. I do not think Belotti or any other ST would mind to be on the bench for a season. Next summer we definitely need to sign a replacement. Loan him after? why not, but we need to get one. Icardi, Dybala, Dolberg, Belotti, Werner or anyone else who may come this season.

    Belotti please. He is a like-for-like Suarez replacement. Plus, he is a better dribbler than Suarez and actually has a decent first touch

    So anybody who follows Torino, what happened to him this season?
