According to a report from Torino Granata, Torino would prefer to sell alleged West Ham United target Andrea Belotti to a foreign club rather than one of their Serie A rivals.

That really is great news for the Hammers, with David Moyes in desperate need of bringing a top class striker to the London Stadium this summer.

The bad news for West Ham is that Tottenham want to sign the Italy international as well (Torino Granata).

It seems as though the Hammers chances of bringing the Italian to the London Stadium have just increased dramatically.

West Ham handed huge Andrea Belotti boost

Torino Granata claims that Torino will try to sell the 27-year-old striker to a foreign club rather than risk losing him to one of their Italian rivals.

Corriere Granata claimed last month that the Hammers are chasing Belotti ahead of the summer transfer window.

Belotti has racked up 12 goals and seven assists in 28 Serie A games for Torino this season (Transfermarkt).

Football Italia claims the 27-year-old could be available for just £30 million this summer.

He is a proven goalscorer at the very highest level. Belotti is exactly the kind of striker West Ham should be looking to sign this summer.

For £30 million, we surely can’t go wrong. And Torino Granata‘s latest report should be a big boost to our hopes of getting a deal to sign the Italian over the line.
