Tottenham launch bid for Torino striker Andrea Belotti

Tottenham are closing on a deal for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has made it clear he wishes to find cover - and competition - for Harry Kane this coming season.

And after expressing interest in Napoli centre-forward Arek Milik, Sky Italia says Belotti has emerged as the next Serie A star under consideration.

Spurs have already made a first offer to Toro for their skipper - with a loan proposal this season including a permanent option to the tune of €50m.

Belotti's contract currently has a €100m buyout clause for clubs outside Italy and that runs until 2022. But Torino do accept that this amount is unrealistic.
