AC Milan have only received loan bids from interested clubs for striker Krzysztof Piatek so far, it is claimed, despite speculation suggesting otherwise.
Rumours are rife that Milan could sell the Poland international in the January transfer window, with reliable journalist Anto Vitiello reporting concrete interest from Spurs, Aston Villa, West Ham and Bayer Leverkusen.
La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira meanwhile claimed that Tottenham have called on the help of intermediary Frank Trimboli to help them open talks, with reports of a €32m bid being readied from journalist Louis Girardi.
Speaking in the Sky Sport studios, Luca Marchetti (via MilanNews.it) has provided an update on Piatek’s situation. He claims that Milan only sell the 24-year-old outright and will only consider bids around the €30-35million mark.
For now there has been only interest and no offers of a fee, Marchetti adds, while loan requests have so far been rejected. Only towards the end of the market would the Rossoneri think of letting Piatek leave on loan in order to protect his valuation.
SportMediaset meanwhile stated earlier on Tuesday that head coach Stefano Pioli’s decision to change system to a 4-4-2 with two strikers up top could mean the Diavolo choose to keep Piatek.
