Inter could bring in Torino captain Andrea Belotti during the January transfer window, with the 27-year-old admired by Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the striker has the qualities which the CEO considers ideal for the kind of player currently needed by the club.
Belotti is out of contract with the Granata next summer, and they could sell him at a cut-price fee in January should they wish to monetize his sale rather than let him leave for free at the end of his deal.
His signing would be more cost-effective than those of Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic or Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca, while his playing style could see him back up Edin Dzeko effectively and dovetail with Lautaro Martinez.
Furthermore, Belotti is Italian, and Marotta historically looks to bring Italian players into the squad especially to strengthen morale in the dressing room.
For these reasons, the Nerazzurri could make a move for the Torino captain in January.
