Torino striker Andrea Belotti has agreed through his entourage to join AC Milan, but Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that his club are demanding €80m plus the exchange of M'Baye Niang and Gabriel Paletta.

The Milan giants are splashing the cash this summer as they look to put together a squad to challenge for the Serie A title next season. However, AC Milan are now said to hold a concrete interest in the centre forward, and are desperate to add him to their already incredible ranks.

Milan have offered half of Torino's asking price, €40m, but have included the two players and are willing to continue negotiations.

They have brought in the likes of Andre Silva from FC Porto; midfielders Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg), Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti (Atalanta), Hakan Calhanoglu (Bayer Leverkusen) and Lucas Biglia (Lazio); and defender Mateo Musacchio (Villarreal).
