AS Roma have announced the signing of striker Andrea Belotti.
Belotti, 28, has signed an initial one-year contract that runs until June 30, 2023.
As part of the overall agreement there is also the option for an additional two-year extension, based on certain performance-related criteria.
The Italy international joins the club after seven seasons at Torino FC, where he scored 100 Serie A goals.
“Roma’s progress and ambition in recent times has been clear for all to see, and both elements have had a big influence on me,” Belotti said.
“At this point in my career I want to continue to improve, day after day, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to do so representing this club.”
“I now cannot wait to hear the club anthem at the stadium, in front of all our fans.”
Belotti, who has previously also represented AlbinoLeffe and US Palermo in his career, has reached double figures for goals in six of the past seven Serie A campaigns – scoring a career-high 26 goals for Torino during the 2016-17 campaign.
He has 44 caps and 12 goals for Italy, for whom he was a member of last summer’s European Championship winning side.
“Andrea is one of the most prolific forwards in Serie A and his addition further strengthens our attacking ranks,” said Tiago Pinto, the club’s General Manager.
“His determination in choosing Roma has really struck a chord with all of us and today we are absolutely delighted to be able to begin this new adventure.”
Belotti has opted to wear the No. 11 shirt for the club.
