Very, very interesting.

According to Torino’s sporting director Gianluca Petrachi, the Italian side rejected a £56 million bid from Arsenal for their star forward Andrea Belotti.

As reported by Sky Sports:

“Petrachi also added that Torino have no intention of selling the Italy international, who has scored 17 goals in 21 matches for club and country this season.

Sources at Arsenal however told Sky Sports News HQ that no bid has been made.

The 23-year-old, capped five times by Italy, joined Torino from Palermo in August 2015 and is currently contracted in Turin until 2021.

When asked about a bid from Arsenal, Petrachi told Sky in Italy: “We received and refused a €65m (£56m) offer from Arsenal for Andrea Belotti, but it does not reflect the value of the player.

“Anyway, he is going nowhere for now. We want to enjoy him, then we’ll see what happens.”
