Tottenham have entered the race to sign AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek to cover for the injured Harry Kane, according to the Guardian.
With the England captain set to miss around two months of action after suffering a bad hamstring problem in the defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day, Spurs were always likely to be in the market to sign a temporary replacement and have now turned their attentions to the Polish frontman, who has scored four goals in 19 appearances for the Serie A giants this term.
Spurs have been looking for an adequate replacement for Kane ever since the departure of Roberto Soldado back in 2015 – although Fernando Llorente did step in during Kane’s absence last season.
The report from the Guardian suggests that Milan, who re-signed former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic last week, would be happy to let Piatek go, but only if they receive the same £30m fee they paid Genoa for his services back in January 2019.
Fellow Premier League sides Newcastle United and Aston Villa are also interested in the Pole.
