Polish journalist confirms Spurs are leading the race for Piatek; blames Milan for his struggles

By Oliver Fisher -

Spurs are leading the charge for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek who is almost certain to end up in England, according to one journalist.

Piatek has started the Rossoneri’s last two league games from the bench having found himself bumped down the pecking order behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao.

On Saturday, Tuttosport claimed that the future of Piatek is still to be deciphered. The 24-year-old is still on the market and several teams are taking an interest, especially in England.

English outlet The Sun then reported yesterday that Newcastle are the only team left in the running to buy Piatek outright as Spurs have now pulled out of the race.

However, highly respected Polish journalist Piotr Kozminski of the ‘Daily Super Express’ has given his take on the situation surrounding the 24-year-old striker.

He began by addressing how Piatek can revive his career, before confirming interest from the Premier League and talks between some of those clubs and his agent.

“I really think he should leave. Today Piatek has become Milan’s fourth striker, he cannot go on like this in the second half of the season. He needs to go back to playing and feel like a protagonist to regain confidence,” he said (via MilanNews.it).

“Sources close to the player have confirmed here in Poland that Piatek’s entourage is negotiating with several English clubs. We therefore suppose that the Premier League, at least at the moment, is in all probability his new destination. There is talk of Tottenham being in first place.

“The real Piatek? Honestly, we don’t know either. The one from last season, who did much more with the Genoa shirt than we could have expected? Or the one that at Milan, in 2019, disappointed everyone?

“That’s why it would be nice to see him soon embark on a new adventure, perhaps in a team with an excellent structure like Tottenham.

“It is also the club’s fault, not just the player. The AC Milan team does not play well and has almost never put Piatek in the right conditions to exploit his qualities in the penalty area. Changing the air in January would do him good.”
