Arsenal and Liverpool are set to go head to head in the race to sign Torino’s striker Andrea Belotti, according to reports.
We were linked with a summer move for the young striker after our scouts watched himseveral times in action last season.
The player was a key part of Torino’s team last season and has continued his fine form this season. He has consistently delivered for the Italian team over the years and it is believed we are still interested in signing him.
According to Italian publication Calcio Mercato via Ninetyminutesonline.com, Liverpool have joined the race to sign the striker.
It is claimed Jurgen Klopp is set to shock us with a £20m bid for the Italian. Liverpool plan to move for the striker in January in order to beat us to his signature.
Wenger have sent our scouts to watch the striker in action on several occasions and we will now have to step up our interest if we must stop Liverpool from poaching him under our noses.
However, a January bid looks unlikely from us as we recently signed Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna. We also have Olivier Ground, Alexis Sanchez and injured Danny Welbeck vying for that position making a winter move for Belotti more unlikely.
Belotti is just 22 years old and has already scored five goals in four games this term.
