Piatek linked with Tottenham
Tottenham lost one of their key players at the beginning of this year when Harry Kane limped off vs Southampton.
Spurs would then confirm that Kane is expected to be out until April.

With Kane sidelined, the Lilywhites have no senior out-and-out centre-forwards at their disposal.
But with the winter window now open, Spurs look to be in the market for a new forward.
On Friday, the Sun would report that Tottenham have agreed a deal worth £28m for AC Milan striker, Krzysztof Piatek.
Piatek had a great start to life in Italy, netting 19 times in 21 outings for Genoa.
The Polish international would also have a fairly positive start to his AC Milan career, finding the back of the net six times in his first seven league outings for Milan.
However, Piatek’s form has dipped off somewhat this term, scoring just four in 18 for the Rossoneri.
Mourinho on Piatek

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho would hold his pre-Liverpool press conference on Friday.
During the presser, Mourinho would be asked about the aforementioned Piatek.
However, despite the Sun claiming the North London outfit had agreed a deal for Piatek, Mourinho remained rather coy when speaking about the striker:
“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.” As quoted by football.london.
