There is no agreement between Spurs and AC Milan over the transfer of striker Krzysztof Piatek despite speculation suggesting otherwise, reports claim.
Jose Mourinho’s side are desperate to sign another strike rafter learning that Harry Kane will be out until April, with a top-four fight on their hands and a Champions League last 16 tie against RB Leipzig on the horizon
Sun journalist Duncan Wright reported on Thursday night Spurs have managed to tie up a deal worth £28million in total – roughly equal to €33million – for Milan’s Piatek.
He added that Tottenham will pay an initial £23.8m with £4.2m to come in potential add-ons, with the Poland international set to sign a three-and-a-half year deal and complete a medical in the next 48 hours.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira though, there has not even been an official offer from the north London club for the 24-year-old.
At the moment, Spurs have only asked for information on the former Genoa man, and they face competition from fellow Premier League side Aston Villa, who we reported have placed an offer roughly equal to €31million.
There is no agreement and not even an official offer to #Milan at the moment from #Tottenham for Krzysztof #Piątek. Just a request for information. For the striker there also is #AstonVilla's interested. #transfers #THFC #AVFC

Sky Sports in the UK echo what Schira is saying: they state that talks are not at an advanced stage but there have been discussions over a possible deal.
They add that it is unclear whether a potential move would be on loan or permanent.
