The 24-year-old Polish player will undergo a medical in the next 48 hours, “The Sun” announced on Friday morning. According to the reports, Piątek will sign a three-and-half-year contract and the English club will pay an initial fee of GBP 23.8 mln plus further GBP 4.2 mln in add-ons.

Tottenham, managed by the famous Jose Mourinho, is facing a striker shortage, because its main forward, Harry Kane, currently suffers from a hamstring injury and will not be able to play until April.

Recently, an Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported that the Polish striker will move to Aston Villa.

Piątek is a player of Italian AC Milan but is likely to move from this club because “rosso-neri” recently completed the transfer of Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

This season, Piątek scored only four goals in eighteen games, while in the previous one he was in very good form, netting 30 times in 42 matches.

After 21 matches of the English Premier League, Tottenham is placed sixth in the table with 30 points to its account, 28 points behind the leader, Liverpool FC.
