Gianfranco Zola: ‘Chelsea should go for this player instead of Morata’.

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola believes Antonio Conte should sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti this summer.

Zola believes he possesses similar qualities to Diego Costa and would be a better fit for Antonio Conte’s squad.

The Blues are reportedly preparing a £70m offer for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
Belotti, however, would also command a high asking price as Torino are refusing to sell for anything less than the Italian’s €100m (£87.6m) release clause.

‘To be honest, I was thinking Chelsea should go for Andrea Belotti in Italy,’ Zola told talkSPORT.
‘I thought that considering the type of qualities Costa has, that Belotti was the perfect fit.
‘Morata is a little bit different, he’s more of a finesse player. He hasn’t got the presence of a player like Costa in the box. He’s a different player, he brings other qualities.
‘Costa was very influential last season, he’s a type of player who fits with the style of football at Chelsea, and that [finding a like-for-like replacement] will be the key for Chelsea.’
