SportPalace buoyed in Borini chase after Torino back away
Palace to demand £100m for Zaha
Crystal Palace are holding out for a fee in the region of £100m to let Wilfried Zaha leave the club this summer. According to The Daily Mail, via Sky Sports, Arsenal will need to splash £100m if they want to land Zaha ahead of next season. The report claims that Palace do not want Zaha to exit Selhurst Park in the coming weeks, which is why they are demanding a record fee for the Ivorian international. Zaha hit a career-best 10 league goals last season for Palace as he enjoyed a stellar campaign for the club. He has scored 32 Premier League goals in 163 appearances for Palace since his move back to the club from Manchester United in 2013.
Torino don’t appear to be interested in AC Milan forward and Crystal Palace target Fabio Borini, despite having been offered the player, according to reports.
The Turin club are looking to sign another forward in order to complete their front trio that already consists of Andrea Belotti and Iago Falque. While talks have stalled over their primary target Simone Verdi, Borini has been offered to the Serie A club with Milan keen to offload.
In a positive move for Palace, who are rivalling Premier League rivals Aston Villa for the £13million rated man, Torino President Urbano Cairo and sports director Massimo Bava appear uninterested in the former Liverpool man, as. This could leave the door open for Roy Hogson to complete a capture of the Italy international.
West Ham preparing lucrative Andrea Belotti offer
West Ham are hoping to sign Torino’s Andrea Belotti as a replacement for Marko Arnautovic this summer. According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, cited by Inside Futbol, the Hammers are willing to offer up to €40 million for the striker’s services and would then offer the 25-year-old a four-year deal worth €3.5 million a season. The 25-year-old has previously been linked with a move to the London Stadium, however, with boss Manuel Pellegrini set to lose Austrain Arnautovic in the coming weeks, West Ham are willing to firm up their interest with a concrete bid.
The Eagles are keen to strengthen their forward line this summer, having already lost Bakary Sako and Jordan Ayew, while Arsenal remain keen on signing Wilfried Zaha.
Aston Villa have spent just under £100million this summer and with Palace yet to spend anything in this window, now could be their opportunity.
West Ham quoted €100m price tag for target Belotti.
West Ham United will need to pay €100 million if they are to sign Andrea Belotti from Torino this summer, according to reports in Italy. The Hammers are on the lookout for a new forward this summer following the departures of Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll, with numerous options believed to be under consideration. According to claims from Tuttosport, as cited in a report from TEAMtalk, Manuel Pellegrini’s side made a club-record bid worth €60 million for Belotti in recent times.
