Atletico Madrid linked to Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek

Atletico Madrid are among the leading candidates to sign Genoa’s in-form forward Krzysztof Piatek, according to reports.

The Polish international has netted 13 goals in his first eight games for the Italian club and such blistering form has led to links with a variety of top European clubs.

The 23-year-old, who scored 19 goals in 31 games across the 2017-18 season with Cracovia, joined the Serie A side in a €4m deal this summer.

Diario AS cite a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport which states Atleti are well-placed with the player but would need to pay a minimum of €60m to secure his services.

Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the Poland international with Juventus and Bayern Munich among the other clubs mentioned.
