Even if they have strengthened their attack with the acquisition of Steven Bergwijn, Tottenham are still lacking an out and out replacement for Harry Kane.
Many names have been mentioned, with Krzysztof Piatek one of the more serious avenues reportedly being looked at by the Premier League club.
However, it appears Spurs have now been overtaken by Hertha Berlin in Germany, with a couple of websites in Italy reporting a bid has been made.
TuttoMercatoWeb explain that emissaries from the Bundesliga side have arrived with their first offer for the striker, believed to be of €25m + €3m in bonuses.
This is seen as an important investment that could ‘convince Milan’ to sell their man, especially after it was claimed that €28m was the figure they wanted for the player.
The figure is also in line with what Calciomercato.it are reporting, as they believe the two sides are negotiating a figure starting at around €25m.
Over in Germany, Sky Sport are reporting the player is now ‘largely in agreement’ with the German side and ‘would like to move to the capital’, but the transfer fee is being haggled over.
Milan are said to want €27m + bonuses for the player, and while Spurs are interested, the loan idea isn’t what the Serie A club want at this moment in time.
If Tottenham do want Piatek, then they might have to step things up in the coming hours and offer an actual transfer to the Italians.
Either that or turn their attention elsewhere.
