Still looking for a number 9 for next season, the Blues could bet big on Torino star Andrea Belotti.
After spending more than 240 million euros on the transfer market last summer, Chelsea could return to the charge at the end of the season to enlist a world-class goalscorer. Ready to spend lavishly, Blues owner Roman Abramovich always makes Erlign Haaland his priority. The only problem is that the 20-year-old Norwegian only wants to negotiate with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. Thomas Tuchel and his leaders then thought of several fallback solutions. First the Manchester City star Sergio Agüero, who will leave the Etihad Stadium for free this summer, but also the former Blues Romelu Lukaku, who shines this season under the colors of Inter Milan.
Two attractive options that could ultimately take a back seat according to information from the Corriere Granato. The Italian media affirms that Chelsea would be particularly excited at the idea of affording Torino striker Andrea Belotti. Considered one of Serie A’s best forwards, the 27-year-old Italy international has scored 11 goals and provided 6 assists this season. It would also be more accessible than Lukaku and Haaland, since the Corriere Granato believes that an agreement should not exceed 100 million euros. A sum that makes Chelsea the favorite for his recruitment against the other three Premier League teams: Tottenham, Everton and West Ham.
