Torino have confirmed that their star striker has not suffered a serious injury amid reports that he could leave the club in the January window

Torino have ruled out a serious knee injury to reported Chelsea target Andrea Belotti amid fears he had suffered ligament damage.

It had initially appeared that Belotti had sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his right knee after going down in training on Wednesday.

However, Torino provided a further update on Thursday to rule out significant damage to their star striker, who remains a reported target for many of European football's heavyweights, including Antonio Conte's Blues.

A statement on the club's website read: "Andrea Belotti suffered a distortive trauma to his right knee. 

"The investigations performed exclude a ligament or meniscal lesion. The prognosis will depend on the clinical evolution."

Belotti missed most of October with a knee injury, and he has just four goals in 15 Serie A appearances this season having netted 26 last term.
