Torino hint at Andrea Belotti exit amid interest from Chelsea and AC Milan

The transfer window is still open for another month and a half but it's already thrown up some huge deals.

Kyle Walker has just moved from Tottenham to Manchester City for a fee of £50 million. That makes him the most expensive Englishman ever.

But he's not even the most expensive transfer of the summer so far. That honour goes to Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian striker moved from Everton to Old Trafford for around £75 million and has already featured for Jose Mourinho's side during their pre-season tour of America.

Arsenal have made a statement by signing Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon and the Frenchman has become their record signing, costing the Gunners over £52 million. 

Across London, Chelsea confirmed midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko as their latest acquisition. He joined for £40 million from French champions AS Monaco.  

The Blues have now brought in two big names with Antonio Rudiger joining Bakayoko at Stamford Bridge.   

However, it's unlikely that the Premier League champions are done there. Antonio Conte is desperate for a new striker to replace Diego Costa.

The Spaniard is expected to leave England after being told by his manager that he's not a part of the plans for next season.   

Costa was unsettled in January by a bid from the Chinese Super League and after that, never really looked at his best. It's clear Conte wants him replaced before August.

It was believed that Lukaku was top of Chelsea's wish list, but Mourinho blindsided his old club, swooping in to secure the 24-year-old.

It's since been reported that Roman Abramovich will turn to one of two players, Andrea Belotti or Alvaro Morata instead.    

Neither will come cheap, but it's expected that the club will pay top money for one of them, especially with Costa so unsettled.    

And over the weekend, the Blues were given a big boost in their pursuit of Belotti as Torino seemed to hint that he won't be playing at the club next season.

The Italian side revealed their new kit for the upcoming season, posting pictures and a video of the players wearing the new shirt.    

Notably, Belotti is absent from the photos and even the video that was posted by the clubs official Twitter account.

Of course, there's no guarantee that this means he's on his way to London.

AC Milan are also reportedly interested in signing the striker who scored 26 times in Serie A last season.
