Gunners fans will love this! Goal-machine Chelsea target Piatek has big message for Arsenal fans

AC Milan star and long-term Chelsea target Krzysztof Piątek has admitted that he admired Arsenal as a youngster.

Piatek is now regarded as one of the most exciting strikers in world football and he was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window, but the Blues could not get a deal done and in the end they settled for signing Gonzalo Higuaín instead.

And that meant that Milan had a clear run at trying to sign Piatek for just £35 million, a move which has taken the young strikers game to that next level with six goals in just seven Seria A games for the Italian giants.

But amid all the speculation that Chelsea are interested in a future deal, the striker has come out and revealed that he was an Arsenal fan as a youngster.

He told Calciomercato: “When I was a child I was an Arsenal fan”.

“I loved the style of Wenger and I admired players like Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp. My celebration? I did after that I scored a goal once and from that moment it remained the same. It’s a habit now and it brings good luck so I am not going to change it”.

“I see people go crazy for this celebration here in Italy. I loved Genoa. I had a good time there. I loved the sea, there was good weather and good cuisine”.

Could Arsenal make a future move for Piatek?

Piatek is a goal-machine right now and is scoring goals for fun, so if Arsenal were to make a future move for the striker then he would be very interested in a move to the Emirates, it would just be a case of whether or not Arsenal could afford him.

He may have been signed for £35 million in January but he has already doubled his valuation at Milan and is now worth closer to £70 million, and give it a few more seasons he may even break the £100 million mark.
