Andrea Belotti.

ANDREA BELOTTI

As Chelsea and AC Milan continue to chase Andrea Belotti, Torino are working on a bumper new deal that will set his release clause at €100 million, according to CalcioMercato .

With 27 goals in 34 appearances, the Italian star has caught the attention of many of Europe’s elite clubs.

With a significant buy-out clause in his contract, it is highly unlikely any club will meet Torino’s mammoth demands.

RATING: 3/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Belotti is without doubt one of the hottest properties right now but goalscorers come at a premium cost.

The Torino man’s release clause is steep but expect him to try and force a move – meaning the clubs chasing him need to be ready to pounce.

FABINHO

Le 10 Sport are reporting that Fabinho is close to joining PSG and Juventus in January.

The versatile 23-year-old helped Leonardo Jardim’s side to Ligue 1 title success last season and has no shortage of admirers after a string of outstanding performances in the Champions League.

Should the Brazilian choose not to continue playing in the south of France then PSG and Juventus will table a bid for the star defensive midfielder.

RATING: 7/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

After a stunning season, Fabinho is certainly a wanted man and it remains to be seen whether Monaco can keep hold of him.

Fabinho would be an excellent addition to any team as Unai Emery and Max Allegri shop for a defensive midfielder who could really unlock his potential on the big stage.

The Ligue 1 champions are demanding €60 million for the former Real Madrid man.

LUCAS MOURA

Inter Milan will rival Arsenal and Manchester United to sign Lucas Moura from Paris Saint Germain, according to CalcioMercato.

The arrival of Neymar has done nothing to increase Lucas’ hopes of staying at Parc des Princes and clubs from England are on high alert to land the 24-year-old’s signature.

Lucas registered 19 goals from 53 appearances last season but never reached the levels many believed upon his arrival in 2012 from Sao Paulo.

The Gunners have already had a bid rejected for the Brazilian, but Paris are willing to offload him for €30 million.

RATING: 6/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

After a productive 2016-17 campaign, a move to North London would make sense for Lucas as Arsenal seek another attack-minded player, with uncertainty over the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

With three bids rejected for Monaco star Thomas Lemar in the summer transfer window, Arsene Wenger could view Lucas as a back-up plan if the French Riviera side continue not to budge on the €38 million fee submitted.
