Spurs and Chelsea set to battle it out for star striker

Chelsea and Spurs are set to battle it out for the signature of AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek, according to the papers.

The Daily Mail are today reporting that Tottenham have “reopened talks” with AC Milan over a move for the striker after they failed with an attempt to sign him earlier in the window.

The sticking point in the deal is that Spurs are looking for a short-term fix to their striker problem. Since Harry Kane picked up a potentially season ending injury earlier in the month, Spurs have been looking for a replacement.

Spurs need backup for injury-prone Kane

As such, Spurs would like to loan Piatek with an option to buy at the end of the season, but Milan are looking for a permanent transfer – demanding £25M fee upfront or a loan deal with an obligation to make it permanent.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star are reporting that Chelsea have been “offered” the chance to sign the 24-year-old. Chelsea are in need of some added firepower in their ranks too – even more so since Tammy Abraham picked up an injury last week.

It seems to me as though this is most likely a leak from Milan to attempt to rush Spurs into getting a deal done. In the report, it states that a loan with an option to buy is the most “likely” scenario, contrary to the reports in the Daily Mail.

I think if a deal does happen this month, it’ll be between Spurs and Milan rather than Chelsea. They will need to be hasty with it though, we’re just a few days away from the end of the winter transfer window.
