The 28-year-old Italian is currently a free agent after his contract expired with the Granata earlier this month, ending a seven-year association with the Turin side. He was heavily linked with a transfer to Monaco earlier this summer but a move ultimately failed to materialise, leaving him unattached still.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Roma have identified Belotti as their top option to rotate with Tammy Abraham and they’re hoping to finalise his arrival next week, once Eldor Shomurodov has completed his loan move to Bologna.
Roma have offered Belotti a two-year contract with an option for a third that starts with a salary of €2.8m net per season and rises to €3.5m. The Italian forward and his wife, who manages his affairs, are now considering the offer and are expected to respond next week. The Giallorossi are feeling optimistic and believe an agreement is close.
Valencia and Villarreal are both also keen to pick up Belotti and reportedly are willing to pay him more, but the 28-year-old wants to stay in Serie A.
