Krzysztof Piatek is finally on his way out in the January transfer window after numerous approaches from a wide array of clubs. According to Gianluca di Marzio, Tottenham Hotspur did not budge on their offer to take him permanently thus AC Milan moved on and have found an agreement with Hertha Berlin for the striker. The Poland international will be in Berlin today to undergo his medicals and will leave the club on a permanent deal for about 28 million euros. He arrived at the club just last January for about 38 million euros from Genoa after a blistering half season.

The striker failed to solidify his position at the club and did not convince the management after his lighting start. He managed to score 10 goals in his first 13 games but thereafter only managed a further 6 goals in the next 28 games. This season he only managed 2 goals from open play in the first half and was therefore replaced by Zlatan Ibrahimovic who already has 2 goals from open play. The striker had turned away the advances of Aston Villa and Crystal Palace earlier in the mercato.
