Before joining AC Milan in the January transfer window last year, Krzysztof Piątek was linked with a move to Chelsea.

Several reports suggested the Polish striker could be on his way to Stamford Bridge, as they tried to solve their goalscoring issues.

He, of course, ended up at Milan, where he hit the ground running in the second half of last season and proved to be a terrific signing.

He’s since struggled for his best form at the Serie A club following a change in management this summer, and several reports have suggested Chelsea could come calling once again this January, should they manage to get their transfer ban overturned.

The Blues currently have Tammy Abraham leading the line and doing an excellent job of it, but Piątek would be a welcome addition to it nonetheless.

It seems any rumours linking Piątek to Stamford Bridge were unfounded, though, at least as far as Michal Pol, director of Onet Sport and Przeglad Sportowy understands.

I know the situation well, I checked,” he told Milan News.

“It was just a game between journalists who wondered who they would have bought if the Chelsea market ban had been removed in January. 

“It is as if someone in Milan had asked a colleague who he wanted to buy at Milan and was told ‘Milik’. 

But Milik is not coming to Milan; there is nothing true in this rumour as there’s nothing true in Piatek at Chelsea.”
