Torino president claims Arsenal transfer target could have already signed for someone

Torino president Urbano Cairo has spoken about the future of Andrea Belotti, who was a previous target of the Arsenal move.

Belotti was linked with Arsenal last year, along with Inter Milan and AC Milan, according to him Calciomercato.

The Torino striker’s contract expires in June, so he has been able to sign a pre-contract agreement since January. President Cairo confirmed this, admitting that the striker may have already agreed to sign for someone without telling the club.

Arsenal have been rumored to be interested in the player, and entering Belotti on a free transfer could be a smart business. With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both set to leave as their contracts expire, Belotti can be brought in as a free replacement.

They would likely spend a hefty marquee signing fee up front, but bringing in Belotti with his experience and scoring record to play as a backup, it would be a good deed for Arsenal.
