Tottenham prepared to play waiting game for AC Milan striker Piatek

Tottenham are prepared to play a waiting game for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek.

The Mirror says Tottenham's pursuit of Piatek looks set to go down to deadline day.

Spurs enquired about taking the Poland international on loan but Milan want a £30m permanent deal.

Spurs won't pay that much and hope the price comes down - or the player becomes available on loan.

Just yesterday, Piatek's father Vladislav said: "He knows what he wants: to play as much as possible and to impress at the European Championship.

"It is already evident that Milan is not counting on him. Therefore, Krzysztof is thinking of moving to England. Of course, if no one can pays the amount required by Milan, he will continue to give his best for the Italian club.

"But I believe that 30 million euros is a small amount for an English club."
