Tottenham want the Italian on loan this summer as Jose Mourinho is keen on getting a striker. The manager made it clear in his pre-match press conference that he and the club want a forward signed soon.
Sky Italia report that Tottenham wanted an option to buy for €50 million next summer but Torino were not keen on that. The same report states that the Serie A side are open to selling Andrea Belotti for €50 million this summer itself.
Jose Mourinho sounded confident that a striker was set to be signed by Tottenham this summer. He said:
“I want a striker. But I want to make it very clear that the club – if you want to call it the club or the structure above me – knows I need a striker and they also want a striker. I believe we will get a striker, I honestly believe so.”
The manager had to get Troy Parrott into the squad last season when Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura were out.
