Chelsea, Man Utd join chase for Serie A striker

Chelsea, United join long list of clubs interested in Belotti

Chelsea and Manchester United have entered the pursuit of in-form Torino striker Andrea Belotti, who has taken the Serie A by storm this season.

The 23-year-old has garnered the attention of Europe's elite following an impressive campaign where he has scored 22 goals in just 26 league outings.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in the marksman over the past month, and according to Calciomercato, Chelsea and United have thrown their names into the mix.

Torino president Urbano Cairo has previously iterated that the player will not be sold on the cheap, and they will most probably stick with his maximum value which happens to be his £86m release clause.

Meanwhile, the player himself has ruled out a potential move away from Italy despite the growing interest from top clubs in Europe.

Belotti earned his maiden cap with Italy in September last year, and he has since found the net three times in seven outings for the Azzurri.
