Could Andrea Belotti finally be leaving Torino?

The striker was linked with Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, but has stuck it out in Piedmont due in part to a nine-figure release clause.

Now he’s being linked with a move to Everton, where Belotti would play under Italian boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Belotti arrived in Turin from Palermo in 2015 and has 85 goals in the ensuing four seasons, including a career-high 26 in the 2016/17 Serie A campaign.

It would be a pretty big buy considering Ancelotti has homegrown striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin absolutely humming at Goodison Park.

DCL is 3 1/3 years younger than Belotti and has 13 PL goals this year, four more than Belotti’s Serie A total. But Belotti is a better passer and defender.

The report says Manchester United, Napoli, Milan, and Fiorentina are also eyeing up Belotti, and that Ancelotti has long admired the Italian.
