Andrea Belotti is has been in brilliant form for Torino last season, but wanted to test his goalscoring prowess eslewhere this season.
Belotti has scored 100 times in 232 appearances for Torino and 12 goals in 44 caps for his country – and we think that sort of form will see him get a well deserved upgrade in FIFA 23.

Currently, Newcastle, West Ham and Everton are circling for the Euro 2020 winner – who can all bag the Italian hitman on a free transfer. All three are desperate for a striker of Belotti’s prowess.
Andrea Belotti – FIFA 23 – Ratings Prediction
Overall Rating 83 (+2)
Belotti strong goal-scoring prowess can’t be ignored – and there is no doubt the striker is capable of moment of brilliance.
Small upgrades across the board will likely raise OVR rating from 81 to 83, which in turn would bump up his price in the market.
We predict while the stats probably don’t make him strong enough as a starter, he could well become a powerful bench option to bring on towards the end of a match for extra firepower.
Pace 78 (-)
Belotti isn’t the fastest striker in the world but has enough pace to get behind defenders. We don’t expect to see an increase here – but in later games we would start to see the 28-year-old start to slow down.

Shooting 83 (+2)
This stat will likely see the biggest upgrade – climbing from 81 to 83. Remember, Belotti is capable of shooting well from both feet and possesses a very powerful shot.
We think that’s a more fair representation of his services for Torino, and providing he can continue that form in the Premier League, there’s no doubt a few upgrades will be on the way too.
Passing 65 (+6)
Not a massive part of Belotti’s game, but 59 is far too weak for a player of this caliber.
We’d see this g up slightly, to better reflect his link up play. He won’t be a Messi by any means, but at least he’ll be able to work better with midfield.
Dribbling 80 (+2)
Belotti is not knwn for his dribbling but he’s certainly comfortable on the ball in attack – so we’d expect a slight bump here.
Again, while the stat itself isn’t massive, combined with strong shooting and improved link up play, could see Belotti become far more effective in this year’s game.
Defending 38 (-)
It is unlikely his defending is boosted at all as he’s so attacking focused.

Physicality 84 (+1)
A slight boost to physicality here – as he’ll prove this very early on when he joins the Premier League. He has always been strong in aerial duels, so this slight boost could give him even more of an edge.
Andrea Belotti FIFA 23 Price
Belotti will cost absolutely peanuts – and is currently around the 950 coins in the FUT market. We think he’ll likely cost a bit more in FIFA 23, robably around the 1500, but that still represents incredible value for the former Torino man.
