By | November 6, 2021

Torino president Urbano Cairo believes that Italian forward Andrea Belotti has “no intention” of signing a new contract at the club, meaning that the forward could leave on a free transfer next summer.

The 27-year-old striker has found back of the net once in three games at club level this term, while he has scored 106 goals in 231 appearences for the Bull in total since arriving from Palermo in 2015.

Cairo has revealed that Torino have made “a huge contract proposal”, however, the club are of the opinion that the Italian forward has “no intention” to sign a fresh deal.

“I made a huge contract proposal but I can’t force Belotti to accept. He has not signed [new contract] and I feel he has no intention to do it”, Cairo told TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Gunners, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are all believed to be interested in securing the services of the Italian at the end of the 2021-22 season.

As it stands, the North London giants would be free to discuss a pre-contract with Andrea Belotti in January, with the view to him arriving in North London on a free transfer next summer.
