Report: €35m AC Milan star a possible target for Chelsea

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea could make a January move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek if their transfer ban is overturned, a report claims.

Piatek joined the Rossoneri in January, arriving in a €35million deal from fellow Serie A side Genoa, where he had an explosive start to the season.

He has added nine goals since his arrival at San Siro, notching 22 league goals in total last season across both clubs, but has suffered somewhat of a drought since.

The Poland international has netted just one goal in his last nine competitive appearances for the Rossoneri, something which is worrying fans.

La Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday (via stated Giampaolo is considering changing his system slightly in order to help Piatek get out of his slump.

However according to – who cite The Sun – Premier League side Chelsea could possibly make a move for Piatek as they are in need of a new centre-forward.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is also seeking a quality alternative to Tammy Abraham, considering the mixed fortunes of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi.
