Chelsea target Andrea Belotti has suffered a potentially serious knee injury and could be sidelined for some time, according to The Sun.

As per The Sun, Belotti was on the Premier League champions’ transfer shortlist in the summer, with Antonio Conte even failing with a £60M bid for the Italian before opting to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid instead.

The tabloid believe that Belotti remains a target for Chelsea, who continue to hunt for attacking reinforcements. This injury could now alter our January strategy if we were planning to return with an improved offer.

The Sun report that Belotti had to be stretchered off during Torino’s 2-2 draw with Verona on Sunday afternoon. He will need to have a scan before the full extent of the injury can be confirmed, but early signs don’t look promising for the 23-year-old.

For Belotti’s sake, and our own, we hope that it’s not too serious and wish him a speedy recovery.
