Tottenham Hotspur are still in the hunt for a new striker to replace Harry Kane for the next few months after the England captain suffered a nasty hamstring injury.
However, we are now just two days away from the January deadline, meaning any move will have to happen quickly for the Lilywhites.
Charlie Eccleshare from The Athletic reported earlier that there were no guarantees, but Spurs had a real chance of agreeing on a deal with AC Milan for Krzysztof Piatek this month.
However, just under two hours later, Eccleshare revealed a far less positive update, claiming that Hertha Berlin had come in with a more attractive offer.
He claimed that Hertha were open to a purchase rather than a loan, which Spurs prefer. AC Milan are also said to prefer a permanent deal, making Germany a more likely destination.
Eccleshare added that Spurs still though they had a chance, but were not willing to reach the €30m price tag set by the Italian club.
