Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is the topscorer at the North London club and has been ruled out for three months after suffering hamstring tear.
The club was keen to sign Piatek as his short-term replacement but that’s no longer possible after the player signed for Jurgen Klinsmann and Hertha Berlin.
On their part, Chelsea wanted to sign Piatek to give first choice striker Tammy Abraham stiff competition than what the likes of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi were doing.
Piatek had to leave AC Milan in this window after the arrival of club legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic pushed him down the pecking order at the San Siro outfit.
