West Ham United transfer target Andrea Belotti has told his teammates that he is leaving Torino on a free transfer this summer.
That’s according to a report from TuttoSport who claim that the 28-year-old Italian striker is firmly on the Hammers’ radar this summer.
West Ham boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster this centre-forward department at the London Stadium before the start of next season.
Michail Antonio has been the only striker available to Moyes since the Hammers sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January 2021.
Antonio cannot be expected to do everything on his own for yet another long and arduous campaign in the Premier League and in Europe.
And it seems as though there is a very cost effective option out there for us this summer…
Belotti tells teammates he’s leaving on a free transfer
TuttoSport reckon that the 28-year-old Italian has informed his Torino teammates that he will be leaving the club on a free transfer this summer.
There was speculation that he could sign a new deal with the Turin club but it seems as though that won’t be happening now.
And West Ham could pounce. Belotti would be a very useful addition for the Hammers this summer.
The Torino striker has a proven track record of scoring goals at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.
The 41-capped Italy international has bagged 170 goals in 433 career games for club and country (Transfermarkt).
Belotti is an incredibly hard-working forward. He possesses superb movement and is always a real handful for opposing defenders. The Torino ace certainly knows where the back of the net is as well.
If Belotti is in fact available on a free transfer, bringing him to the London Stadium will be an absolute non-brainer for David Moyes.
The Italian would undoubtedly provide strong competition for Michail Antonio and signing him for absolutely nothing should be a no-brainer for West Ham this summer.
