West Ham United are allegedly a concrete option for Italian striker and soon-to-be free agent Andrea Belotti this summer.
That’s according to a report from Milan News who claims that the Hammers could move for the 28-year-old striker this summer.
Belotti’s dream is apparently to join AC Milan, however (Milan News).
The Scot is desperately trying to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium. Michail Antonio has been our only striker since January 2021 and that simply isn’t good enough for a club with supposed ambitions to challenge for honours on all fronts next season.
And the chance to sign Belotti on a free transfer will obviously appeal to Moyes…
Belotti a concrete option for West Ham
Milan News claims that AC Milan are favourites to sign Belotti because he is a lifelong fan of the Rossoneri.
In spite of that, the Hammers are still a concrete option for the 28-year-old Italian hitman.
West Ham signing Belotti on a free transfer seems like an absolute no-brainer this summer, as long as he isn’t our only centre-forward addition of course.
The Torino striker has a proven track record of scoring goals at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.
The 41-capped Italy international has bagged 170 goals in 433 career games for club and country (Transfermarkt).
Belotti is an incredibly hard-working forward. He possesses superb movement and is always a real handful for opposing defenders. The Torino ace certainly knows where the back of the net is as well.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see this one happen one little bit. As mentioned earlier though, if Belotti is the only striker signing that West Ham make in the summer, there will be plenty of unhappy people at the London Stadium.
And there is the small matter of beating AC Milan to his signature as well of course!
