According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to sign AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek during the January transfer window.
However, according to The Telegraph journalist Jason Burt, the potential costs of a deal are too high following discussions between the two clubs. The Guardian reported earlier this month that Piatek would cost £30m.

As expected, a number of Spurs supporters have been on social media offering their views on the latest speculation and not too many are best pleased with their club.
8th richest club in the world. Try acting like it. Disgrace #levyout

Literally 30m and levy doesn’t want to spend it. Small club mentality.

If true this is embarrassing, just let this sink in…we cannot afford £30 mil in todays market for a Milan bench warmer, when we face the 2nd half of the season with no striker. The miser of North London is desperately trying to make more loan deals 2 appease Mourinho & the fans

Not all of the supporters would be too bothered if this was indeed the case, though.
Piatek’s record in the first half of the 2018/19 campaign was stunning as he netted 19 times in 21 appearances for Genoa to earn a switch to Milan.

Another fan suggested that their club could now move for Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, although there have been no reports or speculation surrounding a potential switch to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this month.
Will will get benteke. We are making false efforts before settling with last resort to at show we tried 😂😂🤣
