Piatek AC Milan

Clubs interested in signing AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek will have to pay upwards of €35m, according to the latest reports in Italy.

Piatek was deadly in front of goal last season when he scored 22 goals in the Italian top flight but his form has since dropped off at the start of the current campaign.

Nonetheless, Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with his services – with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side struggling for goals so far this term.

Previous reports indicated that the Red Devils were preparing a €35m bid for Piatek in January but according to the latest claims from Calciomercato, both sides will need to pay more than that if they want him in the Premier League.

 

 

The report adds that while Chelsea are interested in the attacker, they are yet to take any firm steps in registering their interest.

The Blues and United both return to Premier League action this weekend following European duties earlier in the week.

Frank Lampard’s side go to Burnley looking to make it seven wins in a row in all competitions while the Red Devils travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich.
