West Ham have made a sensational club-record offer to Torino for striker Andrea Belotti, according to Italian outlet TMW.
The Hammers have reportedly offered £45m plus Pedro Obiang for the Italian international, but the Serie A side have rejected the bid as they have no desire to sell the forward at this time.
Whether West Ham decide to make another bid for the Torino captain remains to be seen but the Serie A side will take some convincing if they are to part ways with their skipper.
Belotti scored 15 goals last season as Torino finished in seventh place in Serie A and they want to keep hold of their captain as they aim for a top six finish in 2019/20, a finish that will secure them a place in the Europa League.
West Ham have been left frustrated in their search for a striker and it looks like any attempts to sign Belotti could lead to more frustration at the London Stadium.
