Tottenham sign replacement for Kane, with report revealing contract details

Krzysztof Piatek TEAMtalk

Tottenham have wasted no time in signing a replacement for Harry Kane after reportedly agreeing a £28million deal for AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek.

The Sun report that Spurs will pay an initial fee of £23.8million, with a further £4.2million to follow in add-ons.

The out-of-favour Poland striker is poised to sign a three-and-a-half-year contract and all set to complete a medical in the next 48 hours.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was already on the lookout for cover and competition for Kane this month after the England man ruptured his hamstring on New Year’s Day.

Reports on Wednesday claimed that man was likely to be Piatek, with reports suggesting Milan will sell the 24-year-old if they can recoup the €35m they paid to sign him from Genoa in January 2019.

New Milan boss Stefano Pioli has no faith in Piatek and Sportmediaset via Sport Witness report that Milan are looking to sell the forward this month.

And while it’s suggested Piatek is “not agitating to leave Milan”, Pioli is keen to get rid and the club could look to cash in following the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

 

 

Mourinho, who is also believed to be looking at Moussa Dembele, has moved quickly after Kane suffered the injury during the 1-0 Premier League defeat at Southampton and specialists advised an operation was needed.

A Tottenham club statement read: “Following ongoing assessment by our medical staff over the past week, we can confirm that Harry Kane will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring.

“The striker suffered the injury during our Premier League fixture against Southampton last week and specialists have advised surgery after further review of the injury.

“The decision to undergo surgery is not expected to impact the time-frame that the England captain will be sidelined, with the expectation that he will return to training in April.”
