Father: 'Piatek ready to leave Milan'

Krzysztof Piatek’s father confirms “he wants to be a regular starter. If he can’t do that at Milan, then he’ll gladly do it elsewhere.”

There were reports of offers from Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid, but only on loan, whereas the Rossoneri are only prepared to sell on a permanent basis for €30-35m.

“Kris wants to reach Euro 2020 in good shape and that means he can’t be a reserve sitting on the bench, but wants to be a regular starter,” father Wladyslaw Piatek told Polish paper Sportowefakty.

“If he can’t do that at Milan, then he’ll gladly do it elsewhere. He is on the transfer market in January, just like Lucas Paqueta, Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu.

“Many clubs are asking to take him on loan, but Milan want to sell straight away to recover the money they paid Genoa a year ago and reinvest immediately in new players.

“It’ll all go down to the final week of the transfer window, when his future will be decided.”

Piatek has dropped to the bench since Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival and the move to a 4-4-2 system.

The Poland international had struggled anyway this season, scoring just five goals.
