Harry Kane’s disappointing injury news makes it likely Tottenham will be in the market for a striker this month.

They were short of cover anyway, given Fernando Llorente’s exit in the summer, and with the England captain only returning to training in April they probably need to get someone in.

Krzysztof Piatek was always going to be linked with Spurs, regardless of today’s bad news. There’s been claims of interest from several Premier League sides this week, with Tottenham added to the growing list.

AC Milan have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer and that’s pushed Piatek further out of the picture, less than a year since he widely considered a brilliant signing for the Rossoneri.

SpazioMilan, who of course specialise in AC Milan, say that via their own information they’ve learned of a Tottenham offer.

Spurs are said to have put forward a €5m loan fee, with a €30m option to buy the Poland international in the summer window. That’s not acceptable to Milan, who would want a permanent deal, or at least a loan with a mandatory purchase clause.

Sky Italia are also covering Tottenham interest this evening.
