Tottenham’s pursuit of Krzysztof Piatek hinges on AC Milan lowering their valuation of the striker after Spurs refused to pay the £30 million that the Italian giants are demanding for his signature claim The Athletic.

Milan have recently secured the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Piatek failing to play the full 90 minutes in each of the last four Serie A matches (transfermarkt).

The report alleges that the player is open to a move and that Milan are also keen to move him on.

However, the Rossoneri are said to determined to recoup as much of the £34m they paid Genoa for Piatek last January.

Spurs are said to be keen to add a striker to their squad after Harry Kane suffered a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out of action until April. 

The report alleges that the Champions League finaists have told Milan that they are not ready to pay £30m for the Polish international and it is suggested that a loan move is more likely if Milan fail lower their asking price.

Meanwhile, The Express report that West Ham, Aston Villa and Newcastle are also interested in the 24-year-old striker.

Spurs Web Opinion

While Piatek’s record this season is quite poor, in fairness to him, it is not easy to thrive in a side that creates as few chances as Milan are at the moment. I can see him thriving at a team that plays on the front foot just like he did at Genoa as well as at Milan last season. I believe Spurs should take a risk and cough up the £30 million Milan want for the striker.
