Transfer News: Tottenham to battle Liverpool, Man United in Andrea Belotti race
The 27-year-old Belotti has been among one of the most consistent goalscorers in Italy for a number of years now. A prolific striker, the Italian is set to enter the final year of his contract with Torino and has been linked with an exit this summer. And, among the clubs interested in securing the signing of Belotti are Tottenham Hotspur.
Heading into the new season, Tottenham will be needing a new centre-forward as the loan spell of Carlos Vinicius draws to a close. In addition, question marks continue to loom large on the future of superstar striker Harry Kane.
That is only set to intensify after our Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City on Sunday night, meaning Kane and Tottenham will be ending another season without a trophy.
With the situation being as it is, Tottenham have now been credited with an interest in the services of Italy striker Belotti.
Having been with Torino since 2015, when he joined from Palermo, the 27-year-old has been one of the club’s best performers year after year. Till date, Il Gallo has racked up 222 appearances for the Turin-based outfit, racking up an impressive tally of 104 goals and 26 assists. 12 of those goals have come in the current season.

Tottenham though, will have to contend with competition from fellow Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool for Belotti’s signing while the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan and AS Roma are also interested in the striker. (h/t Tuttosport)

Belotti’s age, experience and form would make him a very good signing for Tottenham. Apart from being just a prolific scorer, he is also a leader on the field, which is certainly we can definitely do with. But given the competition for his signing, a transfer might be difficult.
