When it comes to the transfer market, Barcelona are simply one of the best in the business.
According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Barcelona are surprisingly linked with Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek.
The 24-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
This season, Piatek has scored two goals in six appearances for Milan.
He is considered to be one of the best strikers in Poland. As a member of Poland national football team, Piatek won 7 caps and he scored 4 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Barcelona.
Barcelona have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Krzysztof Piatek is a long-term target of Barcelona and could be a decent addition for Ernesto Valverde’s side.
The Poland international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
According to Football Espana, “Barcelona have identified Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek as they seek a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez. The Poland international was a goalscoring sensation in his first campaign in Italy last season, netting 22 goals across spells with Genoa and the Milanese giants. He joined AC in a €36m switch from Genoa in January and continued his devastating form in front of goal, but has only found the net three times in his last 13 appearances in Serie A. The fresh report claims that the Blaugrana could move for the frontman as early as January as they seek to pre-empt the future departure of Suarez.”

Milan are reluctant to let Piatek go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 24-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Valverde.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Barcelona.
