Whilst not a household name at the moment, Krzysztof Piatek is attracting interest from the biggest clubs in Europe.

The Polish striker has been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona and Manchester City recently.

But Chelsea should seriously consider signing Piatek to replace Alvaro Morata if he can’t start scoring this season.

The Blues have been linked with the Genoa striker, who has scored a remarkable 13 goals in eight games in Serie A.

Piatek burst onto the scene this season having joined Genoa for just €4m in the summer.

And he scored his first goal for Poland last night as they lost 3-2 to Portugal in the Nations League.


Piatek could be huge upgrade on Morata – who’s tag-line is ‘the next Robert Lewandowski’.

Morata played 90 minutes last night for Spain against Wales, but struggled to make an impact.

Despite playing in a team that was controlling the game, his poor performance angered Chelsea fans.

He’s got just two goals in the league this season, and Sarri has benched him in favour of Olivier Giroud.

If this barren run continues, Chelsea should seriously consider recouping what they can by selling Morata.

And Chelsea have struggled for a free-scoring striker ever since Diego Costa left, instead having to lean on other players’ goals – such as Eden Hazard.

But signing Piatek as a replacement could fill that void, as he is clearly a natural goal-scorer.
