Spurs are continuing their dialogues with AC Milan in the hopes of signing Krzysztof Piatek, a report claims, with a swap deal even possible.
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, but he also acknowledged that Spurs are also in the race to land the 24-year-old.
Now, the same journalist has offered an update by confirming that contacts are ongoing between Tottenham and Milan over a potential deal.
The Rossoneri are continuing to demand €28-30m for the Poland international, a figure the north London side are not keen on paying.
As a result, Schira claims that they may try and insert one of defender Juan Foyth, midfielder Victor Wanyama or winger Erik Lamela. Intermediary Frank Trimboli is at work.
