Genoa Coach Cesare Prandelli believes AC Milan target Krzysztof Piatek is “the most complete striker he has ever worked with.”

Reports are widespread that Piatek is closing in on a move to San Siro at a cost of €35m plus bonuses and the inclusion of midfielder Alen Halilovic.

And former Italy boss Prandelli dubbed him the most complete forward in a recent interview.

“Piatek is a type of player I’ve not really had in my squads before. He has all the important characteristics needed and is the most complete striker I’ve ever worked with,” Prandelli cited in a publication cited on Football Italia.

“I’ve trained some very capable forwards who can score goals, but he is complete. He has strength, good physicality, stamina, intuition and a way of reading the game. He can play as a centre-forward, but also a support striker.

“I think Piatek is one of the best strikers in Europe. I can certainly see him playing for Real Madrid, Barcelona or Milan.”

Poland international Piatek is currently second in the Capocannoniere charts behind Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus.
