Transfer News: Tottenham joined by Man United in Andrea Belotti pursuit

According to Italian news outlet Tuttosport (h/t Express), Manchester United have entered the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Andrea Belotti from Torino.

The 27-year-old has been with the Turin outfit since 2015 having joined from Palermo and has grown into one of the most consistent goalscorers in Serie A. Till date, Belotti has featured 224 times for Torino, bagging 104 goals and 25 assists in the process. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Belotti, though, is entering the final year of his current contract with Torino at the end of the season. This has sparked widespread interest in his services heading into the summer transfer window.

Tottenham could be in the market for a new striker this summer with Carlos Vinicius’ loan deal coming to an end when the season gets over. There have also been murmurs over the future of Harry Kane but the club are confident of keeping hold of the England captain.

But with Vinicius potentially returning to parent club SL Benfica, we will need to bring in a new centre-forward to support and play with Kane at the top. Belotti, to that end, would be a fine choice considering his experience at the highest level as well his track record.

However, Manchester United want the Italian international as well, as they are in the market for a replacement for Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan, who scored against us this past weekend, sees his contract expire at the end of the season and could be on the move.

With the likes of Chelsea and Inter Milan also in the running a move for Belotti could become difficult for Tottenham. More so, if qualification to the Champions League is not achieved. While he would be a fine signing for us, it does seem like an unlikely prospect at the moment.
