It is no secret that Roma are interested in Andrea Belotti. Torino’s striker, coming off a season with 13 goals and 6 assists in 35 Serie A appearances, has been on the Roman club’s radar for a long time now, however there remains considerable distance between Roma’s offer and Torino’s demands.
Indeed, according to today’s edition of Tuttosport, Urbano Cairo, Torino’s owner, seems to have set the price tag on his captain: 34 million euros. Roma, through various intermediaries, went as far as offering 15 + 3 million in bonus for the striker. Roma as well as other teams interested in Belotti, like Milan, consider such figures too high for a player whose contract is scheduled to expire next year.
It is important to keep in mind that while Mourinho is looking for a striker, Dzeko’s uncertain future still looms over the Roman club.
