Manchester United reportedly join the race to sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti, but they will face competition from the likes of Chelsea, Roma and Napoli.

Manchester United could reportedly turn their attention to Torino striker Andrea Belotti in their search for a new centre-forward.

The Red Devils are being heavily linked with big-money moves for Erling Braut Haaland and Harry Kane this summer, although both number nines would not be expected to leave Borussia Dortmund or Tottenham Hotspur for less than £100m.

With clubs across the globe still reeling from the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Chelsea - also believed to be in the race for Haaland - have supposedly earmarked Belotti as a cheaper alternative.

Now, Tuttosport claims that Man United are ready to rival Chelsea for Belotti's signature, and Torino are prepared to accept a fee around the €25m (£21m) mark despite his €100m (£86.5m) release clause.

The 27-year-old's current deal with Torino expires in 2022, so the club would be expected to let him leave this summer rather than walk away for free in a year's time, and the report adds that fellow Serie A clubs Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina are all keeping a close eye on the situation.

Belotti has scored 12 goals and set up six more for Torino in the 2020-21 Serie A campaign.
