The hunt for a new striker never stops at Casa Milan. Andrea Belotti remains one of the targets but Torino want Patrick Cutrone in exchange.
The attacking situation at AC Milan is not as expected at the beginning of the season. Even though the Rossoneri spent 63 million euros in total to sign both Andre Silva and Nikola Kalinic, it was former Primavera youngster Patrick Cutrone who saved the Red and Blacks scoring 18 goals in his first season as a pro.
Massimiliano Mirabelli is working to bring a top level striker for the new season and Andrea Belotti is one of the targets. Though Torino insist that the Italian international will leave only if a club activates his 100 million euros release clause they seems opened to discuss his sale only on one condition. According to Leggo, Torino have offered Belotti to Milan, in exchange for Cutrone plus cash.
While the management seemed willing to discuss such a possibility it was Gattuso himself to stop this operation. The coach considers Cutrone as a key player of his plans for next year and has clearly expressed to Mirabelli that he is against a possible exchange between the two strikers. The 20 year old will stay at San Siro and is expected to play a bigger role for next season.
