Tottenham could look to AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek after learning of the injury sustained by Harry Kane, according to a report.
MilanNews.it recently reported that the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic means that Milan will consider offers that will arrive for Piatek in January with a valuation starting from €35million, or a slightly higher figure.
His future has been described as ‘under scrutiny’ recently by the Italian press, with the Poland international having netted just once from open play all season.
According to Calciomercato.it, Piatek has already rejected offers from Genoa and Crystal Palace as he would like to stay and fight for his starting spot, but at the same time he would consider attractive offers – just as Milan would sell if a serious bid came in.
The report adds that Jose Mourinho may look to take advantage of the situation surrounding Piatek after it was confirmed that Spurs’ star striker Harry Kane will be out for a while with a hamstring tear.
Calciomercato add that Spurs ‘could throw themselves on the market in search of a striker’ and Piatek – at that moment – would be one of the eligible candidates.
Mourinho himself addressed the possibility of buying another striker in a recent press conference.
“We have what we have,” he said (via the Telegraph). “That’s the squad that started preseason, that’s the squad we have for the season.
“Again, everybody knows again the importance of Harry in the squad. I think irreplaceable, if you think about one player by one player, I think he’s irreplaceable.”
