West Ham are reportedly interested in attacker Andrea Belotti from Serie A club Torino.
According to Cuoretoro, the Hammers are considering possible replacements for Marko Arnautovic and the 25-year-old is in their sights.
The report details that they are considering a mammoth £44million bid for the Italy internatonal if they move for him.
Belotti has made quite a name for himself in the Italian top flight in recent years and has 61 Serie A goals under his belt.
The centre-forward ticks all the boxes as a player and would be a first-rate addition at the London Stadium.
Belotti has nine goals in all competitions so far this season for Torino and has proven he can be a consistent goalscorer in recent years.
He’s got the physical presence in attack to play the lone striker role, while his acceleration is good too and is a real handful for defenders.
The Italian has scored a variety of different goals during his career so far and most notably he’s strong with both feet.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team are going to need a quality replacement if Arnautovic does end up leaving and the Torino dazzler would fit the bill.
He’s certainly got all the attributes of an elite striker and a switch to the Premier League should suit him well.
