Tottenham Hotspur are understood to have reopened talks with AC Milan over a potential deal for striker Krzysztof Piatek.
The Poland international was one of the first players to emerge as potential cover for the injured Harry Kane, but Spurs opted to pursue Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose instead. However, a move for the Brazilian has stalled, prompting Spurs to consider other options, and reconsider Piatek.
With just days remaining in the January window, Calciomercato claim that Spurs have decided to reignite their pursuit of Piatek, who they know could be signed relatively simply if they meet Milan’s asking price.
Milan are adamant that they will only let Piątek leave permanently for a fee of around €30m which, so far, has proven to be a problem for Spurs.
It is believed that Milan would accept a loan deal, but only if it includes an obligation to buy at the end of the season, as they want to see the back of him at some point in the very near future.
Having fired 30 goals in 42 appearances last season for both Milan and Genoa, Piatek was seen as one of the world’s most exciting young forwards. However, the goals dried up this season, with the Pole netting just five times since the start of the current campaign.
