Lukaku, 24, was initially tipped to join the Blues from Everton, but Manchester United managed to hijack the deal in the dying stages for a reported fee of £75m.

Belotti netted 26 times last season for the Serie-A side last term, making him the third highest score in the Italian league.

Chelsea could be willing to pay Torino striker Andrea Belotti's £89M release clause, according to the Independent.

But the nine-time Italy worldwide is contracted until mid-2021 and Cairo said it would take €100m for an overseas club to secure Belotti's signature.

Antonio Conte is desperately trying to sign a top class striker after informing Diego Costa he has no future at the club and the Blues were initially touted as the front-runners to re-sign Lukaku.

And, with the Premier League champions missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, La Stampa report that Conte has told the Stamford Bridge hierarchy that a move for Belotti should be a priority.

"Those guys don't come along that often and you had one in your hands and somehow you're letting him go elsewhere".

'I chose the clause to be €100m overseas remember, because it is very high and for the moment no-one has come in for him, ' Cairo said. "I'm glad he's with us and I hope he can stay", Cairo told Sky Italia.

Today, Chelsea are ready to make their move for Andrea Belotti...

'They weren't real offers, but there were contacts.

"I thought that considering the type of qualities Costa has, that Belotti was the ideal fit". I will meet with Belotti to ask him if he's happy to remain at Toro. It's something that needs to be verified, but I have no reason to doubt him.
