Torino have told Arsenal that they will have to dig very deep if they want to sign their star striker Andrea Belotti this month.
The Gunners denied making a £55million bid for the Italian international despite Torino’s sporting director Gianluca Petrachi counter claims, but it would take a significantly improved offer if Arsenal want to add him to their squad – according to Torino chairman Urbano Cairo.
“In Belotti’s contract, we have fixed a €100 million release clause, so if we’ll receive this offer we can’t refuse it. But we won’t sell for less than it,” Cairo told Sky Italia.
Cairo was also asked whether the speculation would affect Belotti’s performances in the near future.
“I do not think so,” Ventura told Corriere della Sera. “Belotti is someone who wants to get to the top, he is hungry, he wants to improve.
“The great champions are those who continue to push themselves, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo or [Gianluigi] Buffon.”
