AC Milan

Chelsea Target On Fire For Milan



Krzysztof Piatek

AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek continued his rich vein of form for the Rossoneri in their league clash with lowly Empoli on Friday night.

The Polish international striker opened the scoring from eight yards out four minutes into the second half before Chelsea-linked player Frank Kessie and Samu Castillejo added further goals to make it a comprehensive 3-0 win over the visitors at the San Siro.

Piatek has now scored seven goals in six games for AC Milan since he joined the seven-time European champions last month.

He was linked with a move to Chelsea in the winter transfer window before the Blues opted to sign Gonzalo Higuain on loan for the rest of the season.

Higuain had to terminate his AC Milan loan contract to join Chelsea from parent club Juventus and the San Siro giants didn’t waste much time in signing the aforementioned Piatek as his replacement in a £30m deal.

Piatek had earlier joined Italian Serie A club Genoa from Polish side Cracovia last summer in a £4m deal.

The Polish attacker scored 19 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions for Genoa.

He signed for AC Milan from Genoa and has netted five league goals in five games.

The AC Milan newbie is the second top scorer in the Italian top flight with 18 goals behind Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo (19).
