Welcome to the Emirates Belotti! Arsenal Finally Agree £86million Star Signing

Arsenal need a massive overhaul in the summer transfer window if they are to win their first title since 2003/2004 campaign.

The North Londoners may have a new manager in the form of Max Allegri and they must sign big stars to achieve big things next season.

In January, Arsenal made an offer of £56million (Sky) to hire the services of Italian international and Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

 However, the move was rejected by the Serie A side and the 23-year-old Azzurri center forward agreed a new deal with the club with a release clause of 100 million euros (£86million).

As per the latest update provided by the president of Torino, Arsenal can finally agree his signing by activating the release clause if the player wishes to move abroad.

However, Italian teams may have to pay may even more than the above mentioned release clause if they are to secure his signature.

Urbano Cairo claimed (Daily Mail via Sky Sport Italia):

“We set Belotti’s clause and it’s true that we would be forced to sell him abroad for that sum if he agreed to the move.”

“However, in Italy I still have the right to refuse all offers, or the player could decide not to leave even if there are offers above 100m euros (£86m)”

Belotti is currently leading the goal-scoring charts in Italy with 22 goals in 24 league games. Overall, the former Palermo striker has netted 24 goals and provided 4 assists in 27 appearances for the Italian side.

Arsenal have badly missed a world class No.9 since the departure of Robin van Persie and they must sign someone like Belotti to seriously challenge for the PL title next season.
