TRANSFERS - AC Milan lining out a new plan for Belotti
Still interested in signing 27-year old Italian international striker and Torino captain Andrea Belotti, out of all of their hitmen (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Olivier Giroud, Pietro Pellegri) often getting injured, AC Milan management, according to Tuttosport, are planning to propose Granata top brass a trade involving the full property of 22-year old Italian midfielder Tommaso Pobega. Playing for Torino since early September, the latter has already established himself as a major pitcher for Turin-based team, and his loan spell might turn into something else, also out of boss Ivan Juric's suggestion.
Meanwhile, Belotti doesn't seem interested at all in having his ongoing deal with Torino extended, beyond current June 2022 deadline. Turning down Zenit Saint Petersbourg last summer, Il Gallo ("The Rooster") was inquired about by many other clubs, including Inter Milan, AS Roma, Fiorentina, Sevilla FC, Olympique Lyonnais, Everton, and West Ham, and, out of signing a new contract, is going to ask for an at least 3.5 million euros annual salary, much beyond the 2 millions he's earning right now.
