Spurs are reportedly closing in on the signing of AC Milan centre-forward Krzysztof Piatek to offer Jose Mourinho a key solution after Harry Kane’s injury. London club striker is expected to be out until April after he was forced to undergo surgery following a severe hamstring injury.
Given how influential he is for Spurs, having bagged 17 goals in 25 matches this campaign, it’s a huge blow for the London club, and so they will need to address the problem with signing this month to ensure that they have enough firepower to compete in his absence.
It appears as though they are closing in on their top target, as it’s claimed that a £28m deal has been agreed for Poland international and that a three-and-a-half-year contract will be signed while he’s set to undergo his medical in the next 48 hours.
Given the level of detail in the report, which also includes a breakdown of how Tottenham will make their payments for Piatek, it looks as though they could potentially be on the verge of a smart signing to bolster Jose Mourinho’s attacking options.
The 24-year-old centre-forward enjoyed a stellar campaign last year as he scored 30 goals in 42 matches across spells with Genoa and Milan.
