Manchester United have been linked with numerous forwards and the latest name in the focus is that of Krzysztof Piatek.

According to famous Italian outlet La Repubblica, Man Utd, Tottenham and other English clubs have moved to hire the services of the Polish striker.

Transfer: Signing close as Man United reach £54.8million – Report

Similarly, as per The Athletic, Man United have made contact to sign the 24-year-old AC Milan star in the January transfer window following the injury to England international Marcus Rashford.

Pitaek was in top form for both Genoa and Milan last season. In all competitions, he started 39 games and netted 30 goals.

In the current campaign, the Serie A star has so far scored 5 goals in 19 appearances for the Rossoneri but now finds himself in a complex situation after the arrival of superstar forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The retired Swedish international started in the last two league outings for the seven-time European Champions and Piatek only warmed the bench. However, the Polish star did feature in the Coppa Italia fixture on 15th January and directly contributed in 2 goals in Milan’s win over SPAL.

As far as his international career is concerned, Poland have usually preferred the likes of Lewandowski and Milik in the strike-force but Piatek’s record is impressive. In 6 starts, he has netted 5 goals for the country.

Man United have not replaced Lukaku as yet and now that their top scoring star is out injured, Solskjaer must not let the winter transfer window pass without reinforcing the strike-force.

The horrid last night’s display at Old Trafford against Burnley, who were able to keep a clean sheet, made it clear that the Red Devils need firepower up front. In such a scenario, a striker like Krzysztof Piatek would improve the department.

His current contract with the Italian club will expire in 2023 and as per an exclusive report recently covered by The Sun, he is valued at £35million.
