Chelsea ahead of Spurs, West Ham for Torino striker Andrea Belotti

Chelsea chiefs are considering a move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

Corriere Granato says Chelsea are one of four interested Premier League sides.

High flying West Ham, Jose Mourinho's Spurs and Carlo Ancelotti's Everton are the other teams mentioned.

Thomas Tuchel's side could look to recruit the Torino skipper as a slightly cheaper alternative to Erling Haaland or former forward Romelu Lukaku.

Borussia Dortmund's Haaland would cost Stamford Bridge brass around £150m this summer while Inter Milan's Lukaku is thought to be available for £102m.

Haaland is understood to have a release clause which can be activated at the end of next season and although it was initially believed to be set at £65m it could be closer to £100m.

The report states Belotti has an £85m exit clause that only applies to foreign clubs, although he could be available for far less.
