Real Madrid ‘speak with’ Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek

Real Madrid have already spoken with Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek regarding the possibility of a January transfer, say Diario AS.

The Poland international has netted a remarkable 19 times in 21 appearances for the Italian club this season, having joined from Cracovia Krakow last summer.

Last week, Onda Madrid claimed Los Blancos are keen on a deal for the 23-year-old, but on the condition that the initial move will be as a loan arrangement.

This fresh AS report speaks of ‘concrete interest’ from the European giants while Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be monitoring the situation.

The Serie A side paid only €4.5m for Piatek – who has also been linked to Barcelona – in that deal but his market value has multiplied with reports suggesting he would only be sold permanently in a move in excess of €60m.

Madrid have struggled for goals this season, with just 28 coming in their opening 19 league outings.
