The 22-year-old has been in sublime form this season, scoring 13 goals in 15 appearances for club and country.

And Tuttomercatoweb claim that the Italy international’s performances have attracted interest from ‘several’ Premier League clubs.

The Gunners have reportedly asked Torino about the possibility of a transfer but the Serie A club’s president Urbano Cairo is demanding a huge asking price for the forward.

Arsenal are in the market for attacking reinforcements and with Olivier Giroud linked with a move away, Belotti could be viewed as the perfect replacement.
