Tottenham join race to sign 24-year-old Man United transfer target

Red Devils and Spurs have both been paired with interest in AC Milan centre-forward Krzysztof Piatek, and they may now have received a transfer boost. Both clubs are said to have an interest in the 24-year-old striker in a bid to strengthen their attacking options, while it’s noted that he is valued at over £30m by the Rossoneri.

Tottenham Hotspur lost Harry Kane to a hamstring injury earlier this month and so need attacking players to fill that void, while Man United then suffered a major setback of their own with Marcus Rashford being sidelined by a back problem.

That very much leaves the door open to a possible exit this month, but it stays to be seen whether or not Krzysztof continues to struggle to get into the starting line-up in the next two matches, and whether or not either of the two Premier League clubs can satisfy Serie A giants touted demands.

Piatek was prolific for both Genoa and Milan the last campaign, as he rapidly emerged as one of the top strikers in Europe. Time will tell if the pieces fall into place for an exit to materialise this month, but both Red Devils and Spurs will surely be monitoring the situation closely.

However, Poland international has struggled to replicate that form this year with only five goals in 19 matches, and his situation has been further complicated with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao seemingly starting to emerge as manager Stefano Pioli’s first-choice pairing upfront in recent league games.
