Spurs are said to be keen on adding a striker to the squad before Friday’s transfer deadline, according to reports.
AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek is one of the names who has been linked heavily with the club for the past few weeks and a report by Weszlo (as relayed by Football.London) claims that Spurs are now preferring to move for a loan deal for the striker.
The report reveals that Spurs have made an £8.4 million offer to Milan to sign Piatek on loan, although there is no mention of the duration of the loan.
It is also asserted, however, that Milan expect other offers to come in for the Polish international before the transfer window shuts.
The Rossoneri are said to prefer a permanent deal or a loan move and are reportedly demanding £25.3 million for the 24-year-old’s services.
Meanwhile, Sport.pl report that the striker has been in contact with Jose Mourinho, holding a video chat with the Spurs head coach on Monday.

£8.4 million is quite a high loan fee and for that price, I believe it is likely to be an eighteen-month loan offer rather than a six or a twelve-month one. This deal looks like it is likely to drag on till the final day of the transfer window. Let’s hope we don’t live to regret pushing things till so late.
