Serie A giants AC Milan have made a £39m bid for Manchester United target Andrea Belotti, Sky in Italy understand.
While the bid has yet to be rejected outright, it is understood Belotti's club Torino want in the region of £56.5m for the striker.
Sky Sports reported on Tuesday that United had a bid of a £52.4m (€60m) rejected by Real Madrid for striker Alvaro Morata, and should they fail to agree a deal for the Spain international would move to sign Belotti.
Madrid are thought to want around £78m for Morata, while Belotti has a €100m (£87.3m) release clause in his contract.
Beltotti only joined Torino for a fee of £6.5m in August 2015 from Palermo, but has burst onto the scene with Il Toro.
The 23-year-old Italy international notched 28 goals for Torino last season as the club finished ninth in Serie A, while he also scored three times for the Azzurri in 2018 World Cup qualification games.
Milan finished fifth in the Italian top flight last campaign, and their latest move could push United into moving forward in the transfer market.
