The Italy international has a release clause of £88m, but they can only be activated by foreign clubs and as such Chelsea are considered favorites to sign him.

However, according to Sky Sports Italia, Rossoneri remain interested in Belotti and have not given up hope of signing him.

The Italian club is splashing the cash this summer and they are looking for a marquee centre-forward.

Milan is tracking Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nikola Kalinic of Fiorentina, but Belotti remains a possibility too.
