Everton boss Ancelotti plots bid for Torino striker Belotti

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has identified a centre-forward signing for next season.

TMW says Everton are plotting a £53m bid for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

The Italy international is a favourite of Ancelotti's and the Everton manager believes he has the attributes to thrive in the Premier League.

Belotti, 26, has netted 15 goals this season including six in six Europa League appearances.

Italy coach Roberto Mancini has also said of the Toro captain: “Belotti has always worked like crazy, maybe too much!

Torino have struggled this season, but Belotti was always there to give his contribution. Il Gallo ('The Rooster) and (Ciro) Immobile remain the guarantees for our Italy attack."
