Spurs have re-ignited their interest in AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek and are hoping to conclude a deal in the final days of the window, a report claims.
We reported earlier on Sunday via our mercato correspondent Vito Angele that Piatek is pushing to play having lost his spot in the starting XI for the time being, and he is happy to accept a move away if the right opportunity arises.
La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira then added that Piatek’s agent has offered the striker to Chelsea as a potential replacement for Olivier Giroud, who is closing in on a move for Inter.
However, Schira also acknowledged that Spurs are also in the race to land the 24-year-old.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Tottenham have indeed returned to the idea of signing Piatek as they look for a centre-forward to replace the injured Harry Kane.
In recent weeks they have looked at Willian José of Real Sociedad, however they have hit a wall in that regard and the north London club have decided to explore other options.
The report adds that an official offer has not yet arrived from Tottenham, while Milan are maintaining their demand of €30million in a permanent deal, with Spurs ‘seriously thinking’ of Piatek.
