The agent of Genoa’s highly-rated striker Krzysztof Piatek has revealed that there have been no formal offers for the Polish international, despite heavily reported interest from several of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The striker has averaged more than a goal a game in Serie A with nine in seven matches, and scored four times in his side’s Coppa Italia fixture against Lecce this season.
The goalscoring form has caught the attention of many of Europe’s leading clubs, including ?Premier League side ?Chelsea who have been heavily reliant on Belgian winger Eden Hazard for both goals and inspiration this season.
Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich ?have their eyes on him too as they seek a long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski, and it has been suggested the Bavarian side’s president Uli Hoeness is a huge admirer of the Genoa and Polish international striker.
Napoli’s president meanwhile has also spoken about their interest in the player and Piatek himself has ?opened up on a potential move to Barcelona, though the striker was keen to distance himself from rumours linking him with an immediate move away from Genoa.
Piatek’s agent Szymon Pacanowski echoed the striker’s sentiments by insisting that despite tentative talks, no official offer has been made for the forward.
?Speaking to CalcioNapoli24, Pacanowski confirmed: “Many clubs have contacted us, but there has been no formal offer. Many clubs have contacted us over the last few weeks, but I won’t name them.
“However, there has been no formal offer from any club, including Napoli.”
Whilst Pacanowski acknowledged the interest the striker was attracting, he was to quick to insist that Piatek would be willing to stay for the foreseeable future at Genoa.
He added: “His value has certainly risen over the three months in Serie A, but right now we are happy to remain at Genoa.”
It had been reported that Piatek is Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri’s first-choice transfer target when the January window opens, particularly with both ?Alvaro Morata and ?Olivier Giroud currently misfiring for the Blues.
After a relatively quiet window of incoming transfers at Stamford Bridge in the summer, Chelsea are being tipped for a much more active role when clubs are allowed to negotiate at the start of the new year.
