AS Roma are now reportedly lining up a move for Andrea Belotti once they have completed the signing of Paulo Dybala, with the former Torino captain also on Newcastle United and Tottenham’s radar.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Italian international will become Jose Mourinho’s new main transfer target after securing Dybala’s signature in what could be one of the best deals of the summer window, with Roma beating the likes of Inter Milan and Tottenham to the attacker’s signature.
Belotti left Torino last season following the expiration of his contract, and the Italian goalscorer has become something of a forgotten figure in the media despite his impressive record with Torino, with the attacker’s form drawing interest from the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle, Tottenham and West Ham.
Reportedly valued at €25m (£21m) in the January transfer window, Belotti has so far struggled to find a new club despite most teams across Europe now well into pre-season, with the striker yet to even have an offer on the table from sides that were said to be interested in the Serie A striker.
However, that could now change with Roma’s new interest in Belotti, with Mourinho seemingly keen on having two class attackers joining the Giallorossi this summer, with Tammy Abraham still on the club’s books after a sensational first year in Italy.
Indeed, Belotti would be another great signing for Roma this summer, with the striker perfect to either partner Abraham up-front or to link up with Dybala just behind the space between the attack and the midfield, and Mourinho is making a good move eyeing the Newcastle and Tottenham target.
Belotti signing would take Roma to the next level alongside Dybala
Roma have arguably already won the transfer window this summer with the pending signing of Dybala, yet adding Belotti to the mix and beating the likes of Newcastle and Tottenham to another top free agent could take the Italian side to a whole new level next season.
With Mourinho already winning silverware with Roma, the likes of Belotti and Dybala could get supporters dreaming of a return to the UEFA Champions League or even a Scudetto challenge for the first time in years, something the Portuguese manager will be desperate to do with the Roman side.
