Sevilla have jumped to the front of the queue to land AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek by tabling a serious offer, according to a report.
The Poland international was given a start in the Coppa Italia against SPAL on Wednesday night amid rumours he could leave for Tottenham or Villa this month, and he didn’t disappointed.
Piatel got on the scoresheet with a composed finished in the first half and even had a hand in Milan’s second goal setting up Samu Castillejo with a tidy pass on the counter-attack.
Shortly after the game, SportMediaset reported that Sevilla are now the ‘leading contenders’ to sign the 24-year-old in January, ahead of Spurs – who have thus far only made a loan offer.
The latest from transfer outlet Calciomercato.com backs this up too, as they confirmed that Piatek remains on the market and could leave this month for the right price.
Their report adds that in the last hours Sevilla – having just sold Moanes Dabbur and Javier Hernandez – are now leading the race to land the 24-year-old having made an offer of a six-month loan with obligation to buy set at €30m.
