Piatek to Chelsea update! Agent opens up and confirms interest in £40 million man
The agent of Krzysztof Piatek has announced a whole host of clubs are interested in signing the 23-year old Chelsea target.
Despite a great start to the new season under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri, we simply cannot rely on Eden Hazard to score all the goals this season, especially since the Belgian has a tendency to go missing for a few months throughout the year.
And with Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata not looking like strikers that can bang in 20-30 goals per season, reports have claimed Sarri is ready to delve into his transfer kitty and make an offer to bring Piatek to the Premier League during the January transfer window.
Piatek has fast become one of the most sought after strikers in world football after a stunning start the new Serie A season, with the 23-year old forward netting thirteen goals in just eight games, with his power and physical attributes causing real issues for the opposition.
But we are not the only club interested in a potential deal for Piatek, with his agent confirming there are now a few clubs keen, telling Calciomercato: “Interest in Piatek? There aren’t any official offers that have arrived. Napoli? They haven’t made any official offers either.
“Many clubs have interest in him not only Napoli. Price tag? Well his price certainly increased a lot over the past three months but as I had previously said, we are happy at Genoa…”.
Can we strike a deal for Piatek? Here are out thoughts.
Piatek is a great young striker that is showing all the qualities we need up top, especially if we are to go on and challenge for the premier League title this season, so for £40 million he would be an absolute bargain.
But with so many big clubs now circling for a potential deal, it will drive up his price and make it that much harder for us to complete a deal, even though he would be a top-class buy for Sarri.
