WATCH: Andrea Belotti Hits Eight Minute Hat-Trick For Torino
It's no wonder half of Europe are queuing up to sign Andrea Belotti.
The 23-year-old Italian international striker has been scoring for fun for Torino, this season and, as a result, has been heavily linked Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich in recent months.
A fee of £83m has allegedly been set as an acceptable bid by the Turin club and, following Belotti's heroics against Palermo, this afternoon, it almost looks like a bargain.
As the match at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino entered the final 20 minutes, it looked as if the 'Granata' might be facing a pointlesss afternoon thanks to their lowly visitors.
Belotti had other ideas.
The Torino number nine put his former employers to the sword by equalising in the 73rd minute, firing Torino into the lead in the 76th before sealing the points with his hat-trick goal in the 81th to shellshock the visiting 'Rosanero'.

But will he still be a 'Toro' next season?
