Genoa have confirmed they are yet to receive offers from reported Real Madrid and AC Milan target Krzysztof Piatek.

The Polish striker has found the net a remarkable 19 times in 21 appearances for the Italian club this season, having joined from Cracovia Krakow last summer.

The Serie A side paid only €4.5m for Piatek – who has also been linked to Barcelona – in that deal but his market value has multiplied with reports suggesting he would only be sold permanently in a move in excess of €60m.

A report cited on Football Espana speaks of ‘concrete interest’ from the European giants while Atletico Madrid and AC Milan are equally monitoring the situation.

Rui Costa: AC Milan will be back!

Former AC Milan star Rui Costa believes the Rossoneri will return to the top.

“We are waiting for offers for Piatek, there is nothing official yet,” Genoa CEO Giorgio Perinetti told RMC Sport.

“Milan know that we would like to keep the player until June, but we will evaluate any proposal that may come in.

“It is not our intention to sell Piatek now and we cannot wait until the last day of the market.”
