Krzysztof Piatek’s future remains unresolved, despite endless rumours regarding a potential transfer.
There were already reports about a potential exit ahead of the January window, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to AC Milan only made those increase.
There’s been claims of interest from the Premier League, and Calciomercato report West Ham and Tottenham ‘remain vigilant’ on the potential signing, whilst Newcastle United are now ‘more remote’.
No club yet has been willing to give Milan the €28-30m they’re said to want for a straight January transfer, a figure which would see the Serie A side avoid an accounting loss on the player.
Calciomercato don’t mention it, but it’s been reported several times before that Milan would accept a loan with a mandatory buying clause in the summer. The figure on the clause would be lower than the €28-30m, because Piatek’s book value will have depreciated given the extra time.
It’s a complicated situation, but, right now, there doesn’t appear to be a club seriously fighting for his signing. Should West Ham and Tottenham interest be serious then it’s likely they could find Milan to be a little more flexible than is being suggested.
