Lyon in for Belotti?

Olympique Lyonnais have reportedly joined the chase for Torino forward Andrea Belotti this summer.

Tuttosport reports the Ligue 1 side have targeted the Italy international, but the report highlights that Napoli and Roma continue to chase the Toro captain.

The report mentions Belotti as one of the main protagonists for the transfer market this summer, and yesterday the newspaper claimed Milan were waiting for the Granata star to move on a free transfer in 2022.

Belotti’s contract expires in June next year and President Urbano Cairo might be forced to cash in on the Italy international this summer, to avoid the striker to leave for free.

The French side, who are fourth in Ligue 1 after 32 games, are still fighting for a place in the Champions League next term and are hoping to boost their squad with Belotti in 2021-22.

The 27-year-old, capped 32 times by the Azzurri, has scored 12 goals in 27 Serie A games with relegation-threatened Torino this term.
