Paolo Assonga via MilanLive.it is reporting that AC Milan could be losing out on the race for Torino captain and striker Andrea Belotti to AS Roma as the capital based side have put in an opening offer of 15 million euros given his contract expires next summer. Urbano Cairo may be forced to sell this summer as it does not seem like Belotti will sign a contract extension with the club. He is very experienced in the league boasting double figures in the past couple of season consecutively.

Tutto Mercato Web via MilanNews.it are reporting that Belotti will be brought in to replace Edin Dzeko who seems to be on his way out. Torino rejected the first offer of 15 million euros but Roma then raised it to 20 million euros. The request is 30 million euros but a deal could be closed at 25 million euros as the player is open to the move. Milan are set to miss out on a long time target.
