Spurs have agreed a deal with AC Milan over striker Krzysztof Piatek, a report claims, with the player ready to seal a switch to England.
Piatek continues to be heavily linked with a move away from the Rossoneri this January having scored just one goal from opening play in the first 18 league games of the season.
A lot of interest has been generated, especially from England and Aston Villa, who reportedly put in a €30million offer for the Pole on Thursday.
However, reports emerged from Sky on Thursday evening suggesting that Spurs are ready to step up their interest in the 24-year-old after learning that Harry Kane will be out until April.
Jose Mourinho’s side are now desperate to sign another striker with a top-four fight on their hands and a Champions League last 16 tie against RB Leipzig on the horizon.
According to Sun journalist Duncan Wright (via MilanEye), Spurs have managed to tie up a deal worth £28million in total – roughly equal to €33million.
The fee is split as follows: Tottenham will pay an initial £23.8m with £4.2m to come in potential add-ons. Piatek will sign a three-and-a-half year deal with the north London side and is expected to complete a medical in the next 48 hours.
