Andrea Belotti rejects Lazio’s approach

Andy Mattioli

Andrea Belotti is a step away from becoming a new Roma player under Jose Mourinho’s disposal following several weeks of waiting for the capital club’s green light.

As the move is about to become official, reports suggest that Belotti was recently approached by Roma’s city rivals Lazio. According to Corriere della Sera, Lazio owner Claudio Lotito and manager Maurizio Sarri reached out to Belotti recently with the intent of signing him as an alternative to Ciro Immobile.

The former Torino captain, however, declined this option right away as he did so with all other offers, including those from abroad: namely, from England, France and Turkey.

The 28-year-old striker never doubted for a second the possibility of joining Roma in this transfer window and despite much uncertainty and speculation over recent weeks, Belotti is now closer than ever to wearing a Roma jersey.
