Earlier today, we carried a report from Sportmediaset explaining that West Ham United and Aston Villa are looking at Krzysztof Piątek, with the Hammers believed to be in ‘pole position’ for the AC Milan forward.

With Zlatan Ibrahimović’s arrival at the San Siro, the Poland international is behind Rafael Leão in the pecking order and therefore is no longer considered ‘non-transferable’ for the Italian side.

That’s according to Calciomercato who explain three teams have come forward for the 24-year-old and the list includes Villa, Newcastle United and Bayer Leverkusen.

It’s claimed the ‘first concrete’ surveys for Piątek were from the Tyneside club and Dean Smith’s side. Apart from them, even Arsenal and Fiorentina have also been in touch in the past few weeks.

Milan, who paid €35m to Genoa to sign Piątek last January, have set the same starting price for the player.

Despite polls from Newcastle, Aston Villa and Leverkusen, the report adds the attacker has no plans to leave Milan or the Serie A in the winter market. that contradicts earlier claims.
