Tottenham Hotspur are set to confirm the signing of AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek after agreeing a £23.8m deal which includes a further £4.2m in add-ons.
The Sun claim that Spurs have moved for the Polish international to help fill the void left by Harry Kane.
The Spurs forward will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring after picking up the injury during the 1-0 loss to Southampton on New Year’s Day.
With the club confirming that he will not return to training until April, it appears that they have wasted no time in bringing in his replacement.
The report claims that the 24-year-old will sign a three-and-a-half-year contract in North London and will complete his medical in the next couple of days.
Piatek was said to be keen to leave the San Siro after the Italian giants moved to bring the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to the club.
The Polish international has scored four times in 18 appearances for Milan in Serie A this season but it was last season he caught the eye with Genoa where he netted 30 goals in 42 matches in all competitions (transfermarkt).
