“I made a huge contract proposal but I can’t force Belotti to accept. He has not signed [new contract] and I feel he has no intention to do it”, Cairo told TuttoMercatoWeb

Torino president Urbano Cairo believes that Andrea Belotti has “no intention” of signing a new deal at the club, meaning that the striker could leave on a free transfer next summer.

The 27-year-old has scored once in three appearances at club level this term, while he has netted 106 goals in 231 outings for the Bull in total since arriving from Palermo in 2015.

Belotti turns 28-years-old in December and may be gearing up for the next step in his career.

Belotti has long been regarded as one of the top strikers in Serie A. This season, he has just one goal to his name but has only played two matches.

Last season, Belotti scored 13 goals and provided seven assists in 35 matches.

His best season came in 2016/17, where he scored 26 goals and provided four assists in 35 matches. Belotti has not been able to replicate that for a while now but consistently hits the double-digit mark in goals

According to Romano Fabrizio, Inter Milan and Zenit were interested in him this past summer, whereas AC Milan have also floated interest.
