Blow for AC Milan in pursuit of favoured Gattuso target.
AC Milan have struggled for goals this season, and they’ve seemingly suffered a blow in their pursuit of a player capable of being their solution in Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
The Italian giants have scored just 50 goals in 36 Serie A games so far this season, making that the joint lowest tally of the top 10 sides in the standings.
Gennaro Gattuso will have to make adjustments next season in order to find a solution, be that a change in personnel or a tweak to their system.
Belotti had reportedly emerged as their ideal target to solve their goalscoring woes as it was specifically claimed that Gattuso was keen on him.
The 24-year-old had an impressive campaign last year, scoring 28 goals and providing eight assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.
Injuries and loss of form have negatively affected him this time round as he’s been limited to 12 goals in 33 outings, but despite that, Torino club president Urbano Cairo has handed them a major blow to Milan’s transfer hopes.
