Torino manager Sinisa Mihajlovic has admitted that he wants a decision over the future of highly-rated forward Andrea Belotti to be made "as soon as possible" so that he can push on with his spending plans.
The 23-year-old could be prised away from the Italian club this season after attracting attention from Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.
Either way, Mihajlovic is eager to see the saga come to an end soon as he is eyeing up some potential replacements in the transfer market.
"We need a forward, maybe even two," he told Sky Sport Italia. "It all depends on Belotti. We need to know his future as soon as possible."
Asked if free agent Mario Balotelli is on his radar, Mihajlovic added: "I signed him for Milan and I would sign him again now for Torino, why not?"
Italy international Belotti is under contract with Torino for the next four years after putting pen to paper on fresh terms last December.
