Tottenham eye Piatek as Harry Kane replacement

AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek is reportedly close to making a move to Tottenham as a substitute for Harry Kane who is out until April.

Rumour Has It: Spurs close to landing Piatek as Kane replacement

Tottenham are apparently close to signing a replacement for Harry Kane, while Atlético Madrid misfit Thomas Lemar could also be en route to the Premier League. Kane will undergo surgery on his left hamstring and is not expected to return to training with Spurs until April. It seems the Premier League club are nearing a move for AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek, although there are contrasting reports over the status of the deal.

According to The Sun, Tottenham have agreed a deal worth 32.95 million euros for Piatek. However, The Mirror is reporting that Spurs have had a loan bid for the 24-year-old Poland international rejected, although talks between the two club continue. After netting 11 times in 21 games for Milan last season following a January move from Genoa, Piatek has four goals in 18 this campaign.

Transfer round-up

Chelsea and Tottenham are both trying to land Atlético midfielder Lemar on loan until the end of the season, according to The Telegraph. Lemar is set to leave Atlético after making just nine LaLiga starts this season.

While Christian Eriksen's possible Spurs exit will dominate headlines this month, it appears the midfielder will not be heading to Old Trafford. Sky Sports reports Manchester United have ruled out making a bid for the Denmark international this month.

Searching for a right-back, Tottenham are keen on signing Barcelona's Nélson Semedo, according to The Mirror. The position has been a problem for Spurs since Kieran Trippier's move to Atlético last summer.

Chicharito on the move again?

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández's spell at Sevilla could be coming to an end. Reports in Spain suggest the club could let the forward, who has one goal in nine LaLiga games this season, leave amid apparent interest from LA Galaxy.

Leicester City are trying to sign Juventus defender Merih Demiral, according to The Mirror. Manchester City and Everton are also reportedly interested in the Turkey international.

Piatek aside, there may be more movement at Milan. La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira says Roma are interested in Suso and Cengiz Ünder could be heading to San Siro, while Milan are still eyeing Inter's Matteo Politano.

Could David Moyes and Marouane Fellaini reunite for a third time? Sky Sports reports Moyes' West Ham are interested in signing the Shandong Luneng midfielder, who played under the Scottish coach during their time together at Everton and Manchester United.
