Chelsea turn to Italian option after Lukaku failure
After being left smarting at Romelu Lukaku’s move to Manchester United, Chelsea are targeting Torino’s Andrea Belotti, per the Daily Mirror.
Lukaku, 24, has all but signed for the Red Devils after they agreed a £75million deal with Everton, despite last-ditched attempts of a hijack from the Blues.

The 23-year-old is said to have an £80million release clause in his current contract, but Chelsea are hopeful they can sign him for a smaller fee.
Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid are other options, according to thr report.
