Chelsea could make a January move for Serie A giants AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek if their transfer ban is overturned.

Piatek has joined the Serie A giants in January, arriving in a €35million deal from Genoa, where he had an explosive first half of the last campaign.

He has managed to score nine goals since his arrival at the Rossenori, founding back of the net 22 times in Serie A in total last campaign across both teams, although he has suffered somewhat of a drought since.

Indeed, the Polish forward has netted just once goal in his last nine games for the Serie A giants.

La Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday claimed that Serie A giants new head-coach Marco Giampaolo is considering changing his system slightly to help Polish forward to get out of his slump.

However, according to MilanNews.it  – the Blues could possibly make a move for the former Genoa forward as they are in need of a new No.9.

The Blues boss Frank Lampard is seeking a quality alternative to England international forward Tammy Abraham, considering the mixed fortunes of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud at Stamford Bridge, as reported on SempreMilan.

However, any potential move will depend on whether the West London club can lift their transfer ban, which is in place until the next campaign due to breaches in the transfer of youth players.
