Italian giant AC Milan has reportedly agreed on a £30million fee to secure the service of FC Genoa forward Piatek who just joined the Rossoblù in the summer.
Piatek, who has scored 13 Seria A goals this season, is expected in Milan on Wednesday for a medical ahead of a stunning five-year contract. Italian reports propose Milan are presently planning to permit Higuain to leave the club once Piatek’s move is affirmed.
Chelsea will land Higuain on a six-month loan with an alternative to buying the former Argentine striker at season’s end for £32.5 million (€36m).
Higuain spent the first half of the season with Milan on loan from Juventus, with the Rossoneri quick to pull up a substitute before endorsing the Argentine’s switch to Stamford Bridge. That replacement will come as Piatek, who has shot to noticeable quality this term by scoring 19 goals in 21 games with Genoa.
Milan will pay €35 million (£31m/$40m) to secure the 23-year-old Polish forward, who has been overtime compared with his countryman Robert Lewandowski
