Andrea Belotti insists he isn’t letting interest from the Premier League go to his head after Torino’s sporting director confirmed that Arsenal have made an offer for the centre-forward.

The Serie A club’s chief Gianluca Petrachi claimed in an interview with Sky Italia – as quoted by Sky Sports – that Torino turned down a £56m offer from Arsenal for their star striker.

Belotti has emerged as one of the most-exciting talents in Europe after a sensational return of 13 goals and three assists in 16 appearances in Serie A in the 2016-17 season so far.

The 23-year-old netted 12 times in 35 appearances in Serie A in his first season at Torino following a move to the Turin based club from their Italian rivals Palermo.

Speaking to Tuttosport about interest from the Premier League, Belotti said: “I have to continue like this, I can not let it go to my head.

“I always have to work, I hope to play a good 2017 to conquer my dreams. The Premier League? I do not think [about it], I only think about Torino and to do well here, then we will see.”

Arsenal signed uncapped Spanish forward Lucas Perez in a £17m deal from La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna in the summer transfer window.
