Cape Town - Arsenal and Barcelona will have to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements after Torino striker Andrea Belotti insisted he has no intentions of moving.

The 23-year-old is enjoying a standout season with Il Toro, for whom he has scored 22 goals in 26 appearances to top the scoring charts in Serie A.

That form has seen him linked to the Gunners and Barca most notably, with both clubs likely able to offer Belotti European football next term - something the Turin outfit cannot.

But the Italy international, who put pen to paper on a new contract at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in December, remains committed to Sinisa Mihajlovic's side.

"Of course I am staying. I want to remain at Torino," Belotti told Tuttosport.

"In fact, I will stay at Torino next season. Let the Granata fans know, I am definitely staying."

Meanwhile Arsenal will wait until the end of the season to try tie up new deals for star duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

Both players have 15 months left on their current contracts, which means that they can soon start actively looking for employment elsewhere should their wage demands not be met.
