Chelsea, Tottenham handed transfer blow as Krzysztof Piatek flies to Germany for Hertha Berlin medical

There are reports that Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea look to have missed out on AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek.

The Premier League trio were linked with AC Milan’s talented forward, who has been made available following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return.

According to Football Italia, Piatek has taken a private flight to Germany, where the striker will have his Hertha Berlin medical Thursday morning.

The Poland international is ready to complete the transfer, worth €27m plus performance-related bonuses.

He had joined from Genoa only a year ago at a cost of €38m, but scored just 16 goals in 41 competitive games.

Sky Sport Italia and others pictured Piatek arriving at Linate airport in Milan to take the private plane to Berlin.

Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United were linked, but they all wanted to take him on loan with option to buy.

The Rossoneri were determined to make it a permanent sale and Hertha Berlin met their conditions.
