Manchester City to battle Tottenham for Genoa hotshot Krzysztof Piątek

The striker has scored nine goals in seven Serie A appearances already this season.

Manchester City face a transfer tussle with Tottenham for the signing of Genoa forward Krzysztof Piątek.

The 23-year-old, who is also interesting Barcelona, has been watched by the Premier League duo after a blistering start to the season.

As well as netting nine goals in the league, Piątek struck four in one game in the cup against Leece and is on fire in front of goal.

Pep Guardiola is keen on the €34m-rated attacked but will face plenty of competition, according to talkSport.

The striker only arrived in Italy from Cracovia in his homeland of Poland this summer though it seems his stay at Stadio Luigi Ferraris could be a short one.

Piątek earned his first international cap in September.
