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.
