Roma or Torino for Piatek

Krzysztof Piatek could be making a return to Serie A, as the Hertha Berlin striker is of interest to Torino and Roma.

The former Genoa and Milan forward moved to Germany in January for €24m, just a year after his €35m transfer to San Siro.

He found the net five times in 16 games for the Bundesliga outfit and turns 26 next month.

The Corriere dello Sport claim Piatek is one of the candidates to replace Edin Dzeko, especially as his agent is also a consultant at Roma under new patron Dan Friedkin.

Report: Fiorentina push for Piatek deal

Fiorentina are reportedly hoping to bring Hertha Berlin forward Krzysztof Piatek to Florence on a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Viola have identified Piatek as the solution up front ahead of 2020-21, but currently struggle to convince Hertha Berlin.

The Poland international moved from Milan to the German capital for €24m in January and Fiorentina hope to lure the 25-year-old back to Serie A after only six months in the Bundesliga.

Piatek and Belotti on Fiorentina wish list?

Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini reportedly wants a new striker at the Artemio Franchi, with Krzysztof Piatek and Andrea Belotti mentioned as the two targets.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Viola are not giving up on Torino forward Belotti, who they have admired for a long time.

But Torino could ask for over €50m for Belotti and therefore Fiorentina must have a back-up plan.

Iachini, who was confirmed to continue at the helm for 2020-21 last month, has reportedly identified Piatek as the solution.

Fiorentina in for Belotti?

Torino are fighting to fend off Fiorentina, who are reportedly chasing their star striker and Italy international Andrea Belotti.

La Nazione claims the Viola have been trying to find a way to bring the 26-year-old forward to the Artemio Franchi.

Torino are, according to the report, not prepared to listen to offers below €70m, hoping to scare off possible suitors, as the former Palermo forward is contracted to the Granata until June 2022.

Milan need patience with Paqueta

Serie A has seen precious little of the talent that made Lucas Paqueta such a big signing for Milan, but Vijay Rahaman warns selling now would be a huge mistake.

In recent times rumours have been rife about the future of Milan player Lucas Paqueta. The Brazilian has been linked with the likes of Benfica, PSG and during the January transfer window, a swap with Juventus with Federico Bernardeschi going the other way was even muted. However, what is really needed by the Rossoneri power brokers is for them to be patient with the playmaker.

Rumours have been swirling across Europe that Messi could genuinely leave the Spanish outfit following a very public spat with former teammate Eric Abidal.

Parma’s director of sport Daniele Faggiano confirms the club thought about a move for former Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek in the January transfer window, but “he was out of our price range.”

Piatek left Milan after months of speculation that he was surplus to requirements following the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
