Pundits opinion about the deal in progress
With Spurs having very little choice give Harry Kane’s injury. The deal is not surprising that Spurs have agreed to bring in a striker in this window.
Despite of being a low scorer with just four goals this season. Piatek could prove to be a good signing. Several other clubs were interested in signing the player including the names of Aston Villa, Newcastle and Crystal Palace.
As per the interest from Premier League clubs, it is to be noted that there is something in the Polish striker that makes him worth buying. Moreover, Mourinho’s style of play could work perfectly for Piatek, who is already used to physical battles coming from Serie A.
