Sky: €35m Poland hitman on wish list as Spurs desperately eye cover for Kane

By Oliver Fisher -

Premier League side Spurs are considering AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek as a possible option to help cover the absence of Harry Kane, it is claimed.

Tottenham have confirmed that Kane will be out until at least April, which may force their hand amid reports of interest in Piatek.

MilanNews.it reported earlier today that the Rossoneri are open to the idea of selling Piatek – who cost €35m last January – due to the fact he has scored just one goal from open play in the opening 18 Serie A games. Aston Villa, Spurs and West Ham were all credited with interest by the report.

According to Sky Italia – as cited by MilanNews.it – the north London giants have earmarked the Poland international as one of the potential options to help fill the huge hole left by Kane’s absence.

Spurs have a Champions League last 16 tie against RB Leipzig on the horizon and they need to source cover ASAP.

We revealed earlier that Aston Villa which sent an offer of around £26-27million (€31m) for Piatek, however the Midlands club are yet to convince the player to accept the move.
