Tottenham are tabling an improved offer for AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek, it’s claimed.
Jose Mourinho desperately needs to bolster his attacking options before the transfer window slams shut.
Harry Kane is out for the rest of the season and Spurs don’t have an understudy for the England international.
Piatek has emerged as a top target, but getting a transfer over the line hasn’t been easy.
Milan are willing to part with the Poland international after Swedish sensation Zlatan Ibrahimovic was drafted in.
However, they’re only willing to do a deal on their terms and were left unimpressed by Spurs’ loan bid.
According to Italian news outlet CalcioMercato , a new proposal will be submitted by Mourinho’s men.
That could then lead to Piatek being withdrawn from the squad to face Torino tonight.
Spurs face another big issue, though.
Chelsea are now jockeying for position as they also look to increase their firepower.
Frank Lampard had been eyeing veteran PSG star Edinson Cavani.
Nevertheless, that deal looks increasingly unlikely with the Uruguay international favouring a move to Atletico Madrid.
The Blues are now able to acquire new players after having their transfer ban lifted.
