Announcement close: Chelsea agreed $52.9m for highly-rated South-American


Chelsea manager Antonie Conte has been on the radar of completing fifth signing for the Blues this summer. In the light of this, the Italian manager has been linked with a lot of players with Andrea Belotti said to be on his prime list.

A report in Metro claim that the Premier League defending Champions has been warned that they might have to pay as much as £88million if they want to complete a transfer deal for Belotti.

It thought that Conte a longed been an admirer of the ace and he has now instructed his board to make a move to sign Belotti this week.

Belotti, 23, bagged nothing short 26 goals and provided 7 assists in 36 appearances for Torino last season.

Chelsea offer Torino a deal for Belotti and tabled a fee worth £63million but the Serie A club snub the offer and requested as much as £88million.

I personally, don’t think this deal will work out cause it will be very hard for Chelsea to spend so huge on buying another striker this summer after they already lure Morata.

On the other hand, Chelsea have sealed three deals this summer window – Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata – but it looks Conte is still very interested in signing more players.
