Report: Tottenham Hotspur reluctant to pay £30m for Krzysztof Piatek

According to reports from The Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur are reluctant to pay the fee demanded by AC Milan for their striker Krzysztof Piatek.

Spurs are desperate to sign a striker in the January transfer window following an injury to Harry Kane. The England striker will undergo a hamstring surgery that will keep him out of action till April.

The north London club have been linked with a host of strikers in recent weeks, and Piatek is reportedly one of the many options for Jose Mourinho.

The Sun reported earlier this week that Spurs had agreed a deal worth £28 million with Milan for the signature of the Polish international.

The 24-year-old has scored just four league goals in 18 appearances this term, and he is angling a move away from the San Siro after Milan re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic last week.

However, the deal is far from being done. Milan are looking to recoup the £30 million they paid for him last January. The report claims that Spurs are one of the many clubs that are looking to sign him but a deal ‘will not happen’ unless Milan lower their valuation.

Spurs are also reportedly interested in signing Odsonne Edouard from Celtic, while Lyon’s Moussa Dembele is also on their transfer wish-list.
