According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United are considering a move for Torino forward Andrea Belotti in this summer’s transfer window.
The 25-year-old has been with Torino since 2015 and has scored 70 times in 148 appearances for the Italian outfit in all competitions.
And it would be fair to say that a number of the London club’s fans would welcome a swoop for Belotti ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
It appears Manuel Pellegrini’s side will need to land a new centre-forward to bolster their options this summer, with Marko Arnautovic reportedly heading towards the London Stadium exit door.

The club reportedly face a battle to convince Gomez to reject Valencia in favour of a switch to the London Stadium.
But a number of the club’s supporters would seemingly prefer to see Belotti arrive in east London this summer over Gomez.
