It’s no secret that AC Milan are interested in Genoa’s forward Krzysztof Piatek. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, AC Milan are set to sign Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Poland international joined Genoa from Cracovia for a fee in the region of 4.5 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
Piatek has played 21 times for Genoa since signing from Cracovia, scoring 19 goals and creating one assist in that time.
Krzysztof Piatek is one of the brightest talents across Europe. The 23-year-old has not yet fully reached his prime.
As a member of Poland national football team, Krzysztof Piatek won two caps and he scored one goal.
The Poland international has impressed in Serie A this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Gennaro Gattuso is looking to shore up his attacking options and Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek happens to be a target. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
AC Milan are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Poland international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
According to Football Italia, “Milan have reportedly joined the race to sign Genoa striking sensation Krzysztof Piatek. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan have already asked Genoa about Piatek’s availability. The newspaper explains the Rossoneri have a strong case to sign the Pole as Inter and Juventus will only make moves if Mario Mandzukic or Mauro Icardi leave. Furthermore, there is ‘uncertainty’ over whether Gonzalo Higuain will stay at San Siro beyond this season.”
