There is still no certainty whether the prolific striker and Serie A revelation Krzysztof Piatek finish the 2018/2019 season at his current club Genoa or not. However, according to the Italian side, there is still no official offer for the Poland international on their table.
Genoa CEO Giorgio Perinetti assesses the situation in an interview with RMC Sport: "We are waiting for offers for Piatek, there is nothing official yet. Milan know that we would like to keep the player until June, but we will evaluate any proposal that may come in. It is not our intention to sell Piatek now and we cannot wait until the last day of the market."
There are a significant number of the European top clubs reportedly linked with the Genoa striker, including Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Real Madrid. Happily for Blancos, their eternal rivals Barcelona have recently left the race for Piatek, according to reputable Spanish newspaper Diario AS.
Piatek has impressed the whole world of football with his incredible rise in form. He only joined Genoa from Cracovia Krakow for €4.5m last summer and has already scored 19 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions. Madrid, meanwhile, have only registered 28 La Liga goals after 19 matchdays, their worst figure in more than a decade.

Piatek could join Real Madrid already in January on a loan deal, however, it would reportedly require around €60m to secure his services on a permanent basis.
