According to Italian football expert Nicolo Schira, AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek has been offered to Chelsea by his agents but Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the player.
It seems that the 23-year-old striker is in high demand over in Italy and both English clubs’ interest doesn’t really come as a surprise.
Piatek’s agents have offered him to Frank Lampard as a replacement for Olivier Giroud, who is getting closer to joining Inter Milan, as per the same source.
But Spurs are also in need of a centre-forward, following the injury to their star man Harry Kane, and are interested in acquiring the services of the striker.
Schira doesn’t go into much detail about the reported deals but he states that the talks are still ongoing.
One way or the other, it seems that Piatek is edging ever closer to his departure from Serie A, and this very much feels linked to the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
But it does seem like an odd move from the Rossoneri, swapping a 24-year-old who’s bagged five goals in the ongoing campaign for a 38-year-old who can surely only be a short-term fix.
Still, if the interest from the Premier League really is that strong, at least they might get decent compensation for this transfer.
