• Spurs keen to sign a striker in January after Kane injury
• Internazionale considering £20m bid for Christian Eriksen
Tottenham will push to sign a striker this month as they react to the long-term absence of Harry Kane and they have joined the chase for Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek. Milan, who have re-signed their former centre-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are prepared to sell Piatek, a 24-year-old Poland international, if they can recoup the £30m they paid to take him from Genoa last January.
An expensive permanent deal would not appear to suit Spurs or, indeed, Newcastle and Aston Villa, who have also shown an interest in Piatek. The Premier League clubs would prefer a loan. Milan do not want that but it remains to be seen whether their position changes in the countdown to deadline.
