Arsenal reportedly eyeing 'unique' £29m striker who's a 'great finisher' but also bags assists

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing Italy international Andrea Belotti.

Tuttosport claimed on Monday that the Gunners had the Torino captain in their sights this summer.

Arsenal isn’t the only club that reportedly wants Belotti, however.

The likes of AC Milan, Fiorentina, Napoli and Roma are also apparently eyeing the £29m-rated striker.

Belotti’s Torino contract expires in 2022, so this is the last chance his club would have of cashing in on him.

Arsenal’s north London rivals have previously been linked with Belotti.

In May, the Daily Mail reported that the 27-year-old was offered to Spurs and other Premier League sides.

Arsenal reportedly eyeing a “unique” striker

Belotti has become an icon at Torino since his 2015 move from Palermo.

He has clocked up 228 competitive appearances for the Granata, registering 105 goals and 26 assists.

Belotti boasts several key traits including speed, acceleration, strength, work-rate, tactical awareness and of course, an eye for goal.

At 27, he’s now very much in the prime of his career, still scoring plenty of goals for a mid-table Serie A side.

Former Torino boss Davide Nicola sung Belotti’s praises back in April.

“Belotti is unique,” Football Italia quotes him as saying.

“I appreciate him for his technical qualities but also for his spirit.

“Andrea is a great finisher, but he is also good at providing assists.”
