Today's Gossip: Man Utd Make Enquiries For Italian Striker; A New King At White Hart Lane

Andrea Belotti To Old Trafford
Man Utd have made enquiries about the availability of Torino Striker Andrea Belotti. 

The Red Devils have made the Italian striker a priority signing this Summer with reports suggesting Man Utd are willing to activate his release clause worth around £100 million.

The striker has been in good form for Torino this season with 27 goals in 34 appearances.

Joshua King At Spurs
Tottenham have added Bournemouth hot-shot Josh King to their summer transfer short-list.

The Norwegian striker has fired himself onto Spurs’ radar with 12 Premier League goals since the turn of the year — a haul bettered only by Golden Boot front-runners Romelu Lukaku of Everton and potential Spurs team-mate Harry Kane.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said last week he expected King’s form to earn him many admirers.

He said: “I’m sure there’s people taking notice and writing his name down. His form has been very good.”

King, 25, is contracted to the Cherries until 2020 and could fetch a fee of at least £15million.
