LaLiga side Sevilla have entered the race to sign AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek in January, according to the reliable Sky Italia.
Piatek was handed a start in last night’s Coppa Italia win over SPAL and got on the scoresheet with a composed finished in the first half.
He even had a hand in Milan’s second goal setting up Samu Castillejo with a tidy pass on the counter-attack for his first ever assist in a Rossoneri shirt.
SportMediaset reported during the game that Sevilla are now the ‘leading contenders’ to sign the 24-year-old in January, ahead of the previously linked Spurs and Aston Villa.
Calciomercato.com confirmed this news earlier on Thursday, stating that the Andalusian club have made an offer of a six-month loan with obligation to buy set at €30m, and are now frontrunners.
According to the latest from the Sky studios – as cited by MilanNews.it – Sevilla are indeed now involved in the race for Piatek.
Their reporter Alessandro Sugoni adds that Tottenham and Aston Villa are still in the hunt but Milan wants to sell outright for the same €35m fee they paid Genoa a year ago, hinting that the Premier League duo have only offered loans.
