Jose Mourinho comments

Despite speculation linking Tottenham and Piatek, Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho has refused to confirm or deny if he wants to sign the Poland international striker.

Mourinho told Football.London when asked about Piatek: "I don’t speak about rumours. I don’t speak about players from other clubs.

“Imagine if I speak about Piatek, is he happy that I speak about him? Is AC Milan happy that I speak about him? I don’t speak about players from other clubs, I’m sorry.”

Stats

According to WhoScored, Piatek has made 14 starts and four substitute appearances in Serie A for Milan so far this season, scoring four goals in the process.
