Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho wants a loan deal to bring AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek in to solve his striker crisis.
Mourinho has been looking for attacking signings since Harry Kane was ruled out for three months with a hamstring tear.
Piatek has been identified as a target who could be available given that he has fallen down the pecking order in Milan, especially since the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier this month.
The 24-year-old Polish international has scored just 4 goals in 19 outings for Stefano Piolo’s side this season. He scored 11 in 21 in 2018/19.
Goal has reported that a loan deal offer from Spurs for Piatek has been rejected. However, negotiations are said to be ongoing with Spurs considering another bid.
Other clubs are said to be interested in Piatek from around Europe. Manchester United have been mooted as a potential destination, but there has been little publicly said about it.
Spurs have also completed the signing of 22-year-old Dutch international Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven. The winger has joined in a £27 million deal.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to make a splash in the transfer market this month by signing PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn for £25 million.
United are scouting the 21-year-old winger with a view to making an offer, according to The Sun. Bergwijn has scored 9 goals in 16 Eredivisie matches so far this season. He has also broken through into the Dutch national side, winning 2 caps for Ronald Koeman’s side.
Bergwijn has previously been watched by Liverpool and United, according to Dutch media reports.
Solskjaer is looking to add width to United’s team. Previously this season strikers Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been deployed in wide roles, but they are most effective in more central positions, but Bergwijn, as an old-fashioned winger, would fit into Solskjaer’s more attacking set-up.
However, PSV will be reluctant to sell one of their stars. He is contracted to the Dutch champions until 2022, and last summer the club turned down bids from Bordeaux and Torino for Bergwijn, so they can be expected to push a hard bargain.
Bergwijn himself has said he is happy at PSV and hasn’t concerned himself with rumours of transfers to other clubs.
