West Ham ‘to fight Arsenal in free transfer race for Italy ace Andrea Belotti to finally solve striker woes’

WEST HAM have reportedly joined Arsenal and Tottenham in the race to snap up Andrea Belotti on a free transfer in the summer.

The 28-year-old will depart the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino at the end of the season after refusing to sign a new contract.

Mikel Arteta is claimed to have looked into the possibility of securing the Italian striker's services.

The Gunners were linked with a move for Belotti as a possible replacement for Alexandre Lacazette if the Frenchman departed last year.

Meanwhile their North London rivals Spurs are said to have had a loan offer with an option to permanently sign him for £46.3million rejected by Torino in 2020.

And according to Fichajes, the Hammers have now entered the frame to sign the Euro 2020 winner.
