Reports, claims Chelsea are prepared to go head to head with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool for Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek
According to Spanish outlet AS, as cited on Calciomercato, Atletico Madrid are the latest team to express an interest in the player.
Piatek, who has been dubbed as ‘the next Robert Lewandowski’, has enjoyed a great start to his season in Serie A and as such, he’s already being linked with a move.
The 23-year-old Poland striker scored both of Genoa’s goals in a 2-1 win over Frosinone on Sunday to raise his tally to eight in six matches.
The last player to achieve the feat was Karl Aage Hansen with Atalanta in 1949-50.
Overall this season, Piatek has scored 12 goals in all competitions – including his four-goal performance in the Italian Cup in August.
Piatek only joined Genoa in the summer and he’s become the first player since 1949 to score eight goals in his first six Serie A games.
Genoa paid just €4million to sign the Polish international and he’s already done more than enough to justify that outlay and if he continues to score in the manner that he has so far this year, they could make a huge profit on him.
