Spurs and Arsenal have been linked with Andrea Belotti in recent months.

Back in April, Tuttosport claimed that Tottenham are keen on the Torino captain.

In June, the same outlet claimed that Mikel Arteta’s Gunners have Belotti in their sights this summer.

Belotti’s contract expires next summer and he has yet to pen a new deal.

The Bizarre Stadium That BANKRUPTED A Football Club

Now, Torino president Urbano Cairo has confirmed that his club has offered the 27-year-old a new contract.

However, he also appeared to make an ultimatum, saying “we have a month” to close a deal.

“When he returns, then we’ll talk to him,” Cairo told Sky Italia, as translated by Football Italia.

“We have already made him a proposal that is very big for our financial capabilities.

“After that, if he does not accept the offer, then we will evaluate other things.

“I don’t like to negotiate via the newspapers, but I will say we made an important offer.

“We’ll see what happens, we have a month to close a deal or do something else.”

Calciomercato claimed earlier in July that Belotti boasts a 35m euro (£30m) price tag.
