His predatory instincts had been suggested as potentially lethal before, but the recently-finished campaign saw the 23-year-old take a step up performance-wise that few believed the former Palermo man would be capable of.
However, according to reports in Italy, Belotti has now agreed personal terms with AC Milan.
Belotti scored 26 times in 35 Serie A appearances for Torino last season and has been strongly linked with both Milan and Chelsea.
However, the same sources note Torino want €80m cash plus Gabriel Paletta and M'Baye Niang.
Milan have offered half of Torino's asking price, €40m, but have included the two players and are willing to continue negotiations.
They haven't been shy at spending money though this summer, signing Hakan Calhonoglu, Andre Silva, Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Fabio Borini, as well as the marquee signing of Leonardo Bonucci.
Adding fuel to the fire of Belotti's impending departure, however, is the fact he, one of the club's biggest stars, was missing from Torino's kit launch on Sunday.
Torino president Urbano Cairo has already rebuffed previous suitors by saying that he would not settle for anything below the exorbitant release clause, but it appears that Milan are close to striking a deal.
