Report: Arsenal target now up for sale, club lower demands from £86m to £30m for Vardy 2.0
According to Calciomercato, Torino have now placed Italy forward Andrea Belotti up for sale amid interest from Arsenal.
What’s the story?
Well, it was said that Arsenal were interested in Belotti back in June.
Now, however, Torino have revealed their stance on the striker.
Calciomercato believe that Belotti is no longer deemed unsellable by the Serie A outfit, and they are now open to offers for the 27-year-old.
Torino now want €35m (£30m) for the 38-cap Italy international, who will face England in the EURO 2020 final at Wembley this Sunday.
José Mourinho’s Roma are also interested in Belotti.
Interestingly, Calciomercato remark that Torino’s £30m valuation is a ‘far cry’ from what they once wanted for the Calcinate-born attacker.
Torino put a €100m (£86m) release clause in Belotti’s contract. While they once planned to accept nothing less, their stance has now changed, it seems.
Andrea Belotti’s EURO 2020 form will concern Mikel Arteta
From a domestic point of view, you can see why Arsenal want Belotti.
As a result of his tenacious playing style, Torino’s captain has also drawn comparisons to Jamie Vardy from Sky Sports.
However, at EURO 2020, Belotti has been poor.
In fairness, most of these outings have come from the bench.
However, he’s looked worryingly ineffective once coming on from the sidelines.
Hopefully, if Arsenal do sign Belotti, he can replicate what his fellow striker Vardy has done in the Premier League.
