Manchester United, Arsenal, and many, many others, have been linked with Torino’s young striker, Andrea Belotti, in recent weeks.

The 23-year-old has impressed this season with his supreme finishing appealing, in particular, to Mourinho and Wenger with their sides continuing to struggle in front of goal. He now boasts almost a goal every game this term, a record that puts him alongside the likes of Edinson Cavani and Lionel Messi.

His side were up against Palermo this afternoon and found themselves behind at half-time but the man nicknamed “Gallo” came to the rescue after the break with an eight-minute hat-trick giving Siniša Mihajlović’s side all three points.

His first came in the 73rd minute, heading down into an empty net after Josip Posavec missed the ball as it looped in from the corner.

The second was unquestionably the pick of the lot, a well-executed volley from Adem Ljajic’s deep free-kick. 

Belotti sealed the points for the hosts with another header, once again in the right place at the right time.

If Antoine Griezmann was to evade United this summer, there looks to be few better alternatives around Europe than Belotti.
