As reported by Alfredo Pedulla on his official website, the CEO has also remained in Italy to closely follow developments related to Belotti. The first name of the list remains Aubameyang but before a real attempt begins it is necessary to wait for the Chinese transfer market to close.

Torino values the player at least 75 million euros, while the Rossoneri much less. Sky Sport reports about a bid of 40 millions plus Paletta, an offer that was immediately rejected by president Urban Cairo.
