La Liga giants Real Madrid are reportedly showing a great interest in sealing the transfer of in-form Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek ahead of other interested clubs.
The Polish striker has had a superb season in front of goal so far, netting 12 goals in seven games in all outings, and this incredible form has alerted Florentino Perez to him as a potentially cheaper alternative to likes of Harry Kane and Mauro Icardi, according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon.
It’s believed that Premier League club Chelsea F.C. have made an initial approach to sign Piatek, with the Blues in desperate need of someone new up front after the likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have been misfiring.
Real Madrid’s attacking options aren’t on their best form right now, and the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo has left a major hole to fill in their attack.
Karim Benzema looks past his peak as a prolific scorer, while Gareth Bale has never really been in the same compatible as Ronaldo in terms of what the Portuguese can offer up front.
Krzysztof Piatek could be the ideal signing Real needs if he continues his rapid rise in Serie A and more especially with a bigger club.
Don Balon state Real could be willing to pay around £44million for the 23-year-old’s signature and also mention interest from the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Napoli.
