Arsenal to edge out Premier League rival for top Serie A star
Arsenal are in pole position to sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti in sn £85million deal this summer, ahead of FA Cup final opponents Chelsea, per Metro.
Belotti, 23, has shot to fame by scoring 25 goals in Serie A this season, despite his side only sitting in midtable. His form has not gone unnnoticed, with a lot of interested parties, but it appears the Premier League could be his destination.
It has been reported that the Italy frontman has a hefty buyout clause in his contract, and although Torino will make clubs pay up to sign him, the Gunners remain undeterred in their pursuit.
Arsene Wenger has not announced whether he will stay at the club, with his contract expiring at the end of the season, but big plans are expected after a disappointing Premier League campaign.
Arsenal missed out on the Champions League for the first time under Wenger, and may need a statement of intent to help qualify next season.
