Italy striker Andrea Belotti has been offered around the Premier League clubs, with three clubs in need of a striker given the chance to get his services.
Belotti has been a brilliant striker in Serie A for many years and his contract at Torino expired at the end of last season, after his poorest season for seven years.
The 28-year-old is still a regular for Roberto Mancini in the national team but has so far struggled to find a new team, despite the fact he wouldn’t cost anything.
Belotti has now been offered to three clubs in England’s top tier, as his agent attempts to get him a new club for the upcoming campaign.
According to the Sun, Newcastle United, Everton and West Ham have all been given the chance to sign him, with all three desperate to sign a striker this summer.

The 20-year-old has instead moved to PSG on loan, and will sign permanently next summer, leaving Eddie Howe to look for another option.
Equally, Frank Lampard’s side also need a striker, having let Richarlison go to sign for Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer, leaving them with Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

David Moyes is hoping to find more cover upfront, with Michail Antonio almost exclusively playing in the role last season and running out of steam early in 2022.
