Torino claim to have rejected a £56million offer from Arsenal for striker Andrea Belotti.

The Italy striker, who has scored three goals in five international appearances, has been attracting interest from across Europe having notched 13 times in Serie A this season.

Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi told Sky Italia that Arsenal had made an offer but Belotti will not move in January.

Petrachi said: “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.

“We intend to keep Belotti and president Urbano Cairo signed this important buy-out clause. I think he’s worth more than they have offered.”

Arsenal, though, say no bid has been placed, according to Sky Sports News.

Belotti recently signed a new deal at Torino until 2021, with a release clause said to be worth around £86million.
