Newcastle, Everton and West Ham ‘are all offered the chance to sign Italian Euro 2020 winner Andrea Belotti’ as the out-of-contract striker looks for a Premier League switch after leaving Torino

  • Three Premier League sides have been offered the chance to sign Andrea Belotti
  • The striker is a free agent after leaving Torino at the end of last season
  • Newcastle, Everton and West Ham are the clubs that have been proposed Belotti
  • The Italian international was a member of the squad that lifted Euro 2020 

Premier League sides have been offered the chance to sign Euro 2020 winner Andrea Belotti this summer, according to reports.

The Italian international is a free agent after leaving Serie A side Torino at the end of last season.

The striker spent seven years in Turin but has rejected a new deal with the Italian side as he seeks a move elsewhere.

As reported by The Sun, Belotti’s representatives have offered Newcastle, Everton and West Ham the chance to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer. 

The talisman has scored 12 goals in 44 caps for Italy and was a member of the squad that lifted the European Championship last summer.

Belotti has been prolific during his time in Italy, netting 100 times in 232 appearances for Torino, but the forward is now hoping to seal a switch to the Premier League.

Callum Wilson made just 18 appearances in the Premier League for Newcastle last season

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is currently heading into the new campaign with just Callum Wilson and Chris Wood to call upon for forward options.

The Magpies have missed out on a host of targets in this window and lack the firepower to challenge the upper echelons of the Premier League.

Wilson has endured a torrid time with injuries in the North East, making just 18 top-flight appearances last term. 

Frank Lampard will be keen to bring in a forward following the departure of Richarlison

West Ham are also in for Sassuolo forward Gianluca Scamacca to bolster their options

Dwight Gayle has also departed the club this summer, which may make a swoop for Belotti an enticing prospect.

Everton could also consider a deal for the Italian after losing attacker Richarlison to Tottenham last month.

Manager Frank Lampard will be keen to avoid another relegation battle next season and Belotti will bolster the Toffees’ forward options.

But the proposition may also tempt West Ham into making an offer to capture the services of the 28-year-old.

David Moyes’ side have been linked with a move for fellow Italy striker Gianluca Scamacca this summer but are yet to agree a deal with Sassuolo as they seek a back-up striker for Michail Antonio.

Belotti will bring a breath of fresh air to Moyes’ front-line, as an alternative option will be integral to the Hammers’ hopes of challenging in Europe and for the top four next season.
