West Ham United allegedly could sign talented Torino striker Andrea Belotti on a free transfer this summer.

That’s according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 28-year-old centre-forward to the London Stadium before the start of next season.

The additions of a proven goalscorer should be Moyes’s absolute number one priority in the summer transfer window.

Michail Antonio is currently our only option through the middle and the 32-year-old is crying out for more competition and cover.

He has even said so himself!

And it seems as though Micky could have some proper competition for his place next season…

West Ham line up Andrea Belotti swoop

The Italian hitman is firmly on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb.

Belotti will be out of contract with Torino in the summer so West Ham can snap him up on a free transfer.

And what a signing the 28-year-old would be for the Hammers. The Torino striker has a proven track record of scoring goals at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.

He was once valued at £55 million (The Sun).

The 41-capped Italy international has bagged 155 goals in 385 career games at club level (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.

Signing the Italian for absolutely nothing would be sensational business for the Hammers.

And a West Ham having Andrea Belotti as an option next season would be a very good thing indeed.
