Tottenham hold talks with AC Milan over Krzysztof Piatek

69

Tottenham and AC Milan have held talks about signing Krzysztof Piatek this month.

Talks are not at an advanced stage and no formal offers have yet been made for the Polish striker.

It is unclear at this point if any move would be temporary or permanent.

Tottenham are short of striker options after Harry Kane was ruled out until April after undergoing surgery on a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring.

Piatek joined AC Milan in a £31m deal from Genoa on a four-and-a-half-year contract in January 2019 and has scored 15 goals in 39 appearances.

The 25-year-old, who has 10 caps for Poland, originally joined Genoa for £3.6m from Polish side Cracovia in the summer of 2018.

Piatek has not been as prolific this season, scoring four times in 18 Serie A appearances for Stefano Pioli’s side, who currently sit 12th in the table.

Milan boosted their attacking options earlier this month when they signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a six-month deal, with an option to extend his stay by a further year.
