Tottenham have been strongly linked with a move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek over the last 12 hours or so, but so far reports have been conflicting.
Piatek joined AC Milan from Genoa in January 2019 after scoring a huge amount of goals in Serie A. He started well in Milan but has scored just four league goals so far this season. And with the recent arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the San Siro, Piatek’s game time is likely to reduce.
On Thursday evening, fresh rumours began to emerge. The Sun claimed Spurs have agreed a £28 million deal with Milan to sign Piatek and that the Polish international will complete a medical in the next 48 hours.
That story was later backed up by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, who tweeted that there was an agreement in place for Piatek to travel to Tottenham, presumably for talks.
However, another Italian football journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, reported there is no agreement in place yet. He thinks Spurs initially saw a loan offer turned down. The Londoners then apparently tried for a permanent deal, using Victor Wanyama and Juan Foyth as makeweights. But no agreement was in place as of Thursday night.
It will be interesting to see if more stories emerge throughout Friday. In any case, it seems Tottenham are pursuing a replacement for Harry Kane, who has been ruled out until April.
