Report: Why Spurs have edge over Newcastle, Aston Villa in race for €27m Milan man

By Oliver Fisher -

Spurs are ready to ‘step up their interest’ in AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek amid competition from their Premier League rivals, a report claims.

MilanNews.it reported earlier today that the Rossoneri are open to the idea of selling Piatek due to the fact he has scored just one goal from open play in the opening 18 Serie A games.

The future of Piatek – who joined a year ago from Genoa – could be in the Premier League, with Aston Villa, Spurs and West Ham all apparently interested.

According to The Sun, it is Spurs who have the edge over Villa, Newcastle and Crystal Palace in the race to land the Poland international, who Milan have set an asking price of €27m for.

The English outlet claims that Jose Mourinho’s side are desperate to land cover for the injured Harry Kane and are ‘in a better position to land the striker’, who only wants to leave Milan for a club of similar size.
