Torino name their price for Arsenal target Belotti

Antonio JonesJan 10, 2017

Their form this term has been strongly helped by striker Andrea Belotti's input, having scored 13 league goals so far, and now sits one goal behind Mauro Icardi at the top of the goalscoring charts.

Wenger also confirmed that he will continue to enforce his over-30's policy of offering one-year extensions in an effort to keep Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker at the club beyond the summer, with both entering the final six months of their contracts.

Arsenal have had a £56m bid for striker Andrea Belotti rejected, according to Torino's sporting director Gianluca Petrachi.

In turn, it's no surprise that he's attracting interest from around Europe, and speculation this week did link him with a move to Arsenal.

Torino President Urbano Cairo warned Arsenal that Andrea Belotti "has a €100m clause and we've no intention of selling for less than that".

"Yes, we received the offer but it didn't reflect the true value of the player" Petrachi told Sky Sport.

But The Independent understands that Arsenal have not made such an offer, even though it is not clear if Petrachi was referring to the summer or winter transfer window.

"He is going nowhere".

Arsenal are keen on landing a forward despite Olivier Giroud's impressive form and Danny Welbeck's return from injury. "I think he's worth more than they have offered".

Could Arsenal really be interested in Belotti?

"If someone comes in with the full release clause sum, then we won't have a choice, but I doubt anyone will reach that figure yet".
