Andrea Belotti’s 26 Serie A goals last season might go some way to explaining why his release clause is a massive €100 million, but one in particular in the 2017/18 season has justified that fee all on its own.
The 23-year-old Italy striker is rumoured to be wanted by Chelsea, and in a league game against Sassuolo he demonstrated exactly why.

Ridiculous elevation on Belotti's scissor-kick goal. The way he contorts his body too. Sensational— James Horncastle (@JamesHorncastle) August 27, 2017
Belotti also has four goals in nine games for Italy, but with just days left in the transfer window, could anybody tempt him with a move?

If they can, that overhead kick might have added another €10 million to the price.
