The Poland international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Maurizio Sarri wants to target in the winter transfer window.

According to Teamtalk, “Chelsea are reportedly planning a €35million January swoop for Liverpool, Man City and Tottenham attacking target Krzysztof Piatek.

That form has alerted a number of Europe’s big hitters to sit up and take notice, with Leicester, Wolves and Everton also said to have scouted the Poland international. However, the report in Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Chelsea are the frontrunners for Piatek, having already sounded out the player’s representatives over a potential move in the new year.”
