AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek favours a move to the Premier League according to his father.
Piatek has been linked heavily with Spurs for the past few weeks as the Lilywhites seek to bring in a striker to replace the injured Harry Kane (The Sun).
Piatek has fallen out of favour at AC Milan since the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovich and the Italian giants are said to be open to moving him on this month.
Spurs might face competition for the Polish international’s signature with Manchester United also said to be keen on landing him (The Mirror).
Piatek’s father has now revealed that the striker is not happy in playing a bit part role in Milan and would be in favour of a move away from the club, just a year after joining the Rossoneri from Genoa.
He also claimed that it would take £29.5million for the Italian club to part ways with the 24-year-old.
Speaking to Polish outlet Sportowe Fakty, the striker’s father Władysław Piatek said: “Krzysztof wants to define himself. He certainly does not agree with the role of the substitute. He wants to play so he can be in shape for the Euros, so he must perform regularly. He is willing to change club. He is most interested in the English league.
“It seems to me that Krzysztof is already mentally focused on leaving. Of course, if nobody puts out the money, it may turn out that Krzysztof will not go anywhere, but for English clubs, €35million (£29.5million) is not much,”
Spurs Web Opinion
While it is clear based on the reports over the past few weeks that Spurs have made an enquiry about Piatek, I don’t believe the Polish international is one of our primary targets. I think he is likely a back up in case we fail to land our ideal targets.
