Belotti rejects €60m West Ham bid

West Ham United offered €60m for Italy international striker Andrea Belotti, it’s reported, but Torino have a €100m release clause.

According to Tuttosport, the Hammers made a huge €60m (approximately £54m) bid for the 25-year-old centre-forward.

Toro turned it down, as ‘Il Gallo’ is not for sale and has a €100m release clause in his contract, valid only for clubs outside of Italy.

Toro charge towards Europe

With Torino unexpectedly given a shot at the Europa League, Jay Cassano evaluates where the squad needs to improve.

Milan's exclusion from European football as a result of their Financial Fair Play settlement means Torino gets to take their place. In truth, missing a season of the Europa League won't have much impact on Milan's fortunes given their strong revenue base while they try to become a Champions League squad once again. But for Torino, it represents a significant upswing in fortunes. This windfall sets the Granata up to continue building on the strong work they've done in recent seasons.

Our Big Fat Greek Victory

This was as close to a perfect Italy performance as we’ve seen for many years and Giancarlo Rinaldi is relishing the Athens triumph.

If a Coach is measured by his ability to get his more surprising decisions right, Roberto Mancini is definitely a man on the up. There were those who thought this first mildly testing away tie might trip up his resuscitation of the Azzurri. They will have to wait until at least another game to puncture the feel-good factor he has begun to inflate Italian chests.

Mancini: 'Italy have attacking options'

It kicks off in Athens at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

The predicted line-ups remain in the air, as the centre-forward in his 4-3-3 formation could be Andrea Belotti, Fabio Quagliarella or even Federico Bernardeschi as a False 9.
