    Wasn't sure whether he just had a mad purple patch at the start of his Genoa career, and he actually wasn't as good as the stats suggested.

    But he seems to be the real deal.

    That’s exactly what I thought but it’s starting to look like he actually is that good.

    His 3 goals for Milan so far have been superb finishes. To do as well as he did for Genoa was pretty remarkable too.

    Poland are blessed with some great strikers. Lewandowski, Milik and Piatek.

    Didn’t realise that was his first season at Genoa. He only made 19 appearances for them according to wiki.

    I thought he had been there for a while and just recently made his breakthrough in the Genoa team :88:

    Nice wee £30 million profit for Genoa after 6 months!

    Definitely.

    Even this early, it looks to be a real bargain for Milan even at that fee.

    Poland is one of the markets I wish we would look into more. Just shows the talent you can pick up if you look hard enough.

    Had to Google Piatek when checking the Milan score the other night. Was on his wiki page and he looks like a bit of a goal machine. Had never heard of him until then.

    It is too much but tbf they're one of the best ran clubs on Earth and if they'd signed him in contract still would've been 25+ million plus a wage of 200 grand easy anyway.

    Inter have taken the captaincy from Icardi. Handanovic now has the armband.

    Not a good sign...
