AS Roma and Mourinho hope to land Torino’s Andrea Belotti

Roma has raised their “provocative” offer from last week and hopes to land Andrea Belotti for €20 million.

Jose Mourinho hopes to sign Andrea Belotti to improve his attacking arsenal at AS Roma where he was recently appointed manager. Mourinho has already managed to convince Roma’s main man Herikh Mkhitaryan to extend his stay at the club by signing a new deal for 2 years. Now his sights are set on bringing in Torino’s talismanic striker Belotti to Rome.

Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto has been busy trying to secure the deal over the past several weeks. An opening offer of 15 million euros was made last week; one that reportedly upset an unimpressed Torino President Urbano Cairo.

Belotti’s contract expires at the end of next season but Torino remains adamant in their demands for Belotti. Torino value the striker at a reported €30 million. Despite that difference in valuation, Roma continues to press for Belotti.

According to the Corriere Dello Sport, Roma has submitted an improved €20 million offer for Belotti, which include fixed and easily achievable bonuses. He also gets an increase in salary with a reported €3 million annual salary until 2025, an upgrade on his current deal which provides him €2 million salary, which expires next June. Torino is holding firm at their €30 million price point and new manager Ivan Juric is desperate to hold onto his striker. Negotiations between Roma and Torino might hit a standstill, forcing Torino to look abroad for new strikers.

In 35 matches for Torino in Serie A, the Italian has scored 13 goals and racked up 6 assists.
