Krzysztof Piatek has taken to social media to reveal he has completed a move to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.
Spurs had been linked heavily with a move for Piatek with Jose Mourinho reportedly having considered the Polish international as a potential replacement for the injured Harry Kane (The Sun).
The Champions League finalists were previously reported to have agreed a £28m deal for the striker only for the move to fail to materialise.
The 24-year-old, fell down the pecking order at Milan following the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
However, despite the heavy speculation, Tottenham decided not to pursue the striker which opened the door for German side to swoop in with a £23.5million deal to land him (Sky Sports).
Piatek took to social media to post the following message after sealing his transfer to Germany:
I'm very excited to be part of this project 💙 #DieZukunftGehörtBerlin and play in the @Bundesliga_DE 🇩🇪 for my new team @HerthaBSC in great city with an incredible tifo! 🔵⚪ Can't wait to start the game at #olympiastadionberlin ⚽ Vielen Dank! 🙏 #HaHoHe pic.twitter.com/DTjwG2SPTL

With just one day of the transfer window now left, the time is running out for Tottenham if they wish to sign a striker before the window shuts.
Spurs Web Opinion
While a lot of fans were quite optimistic about Piatek, I always believed he would have been a risky acquisition if we had gone ahead and signed him. Hopefully, our decision to not pursue him means that we have other options that we could go for on deadline day.
