Krzysztof Piatek spearhead AC Milan clearout

    AC Milan have a pretty busy winter, more in terms of outgoings than incomings, with two more players following Suso through the exit door on Thursday

    The Spaniard linked up with Sevilla yesterday on a six-month loan with an option to remain permanently for €21m that will become mandatory obligation should the Andalusian side finish in the top four in La Liga.

    A bloated squad has required Milan to offload numerous fringe players to free up wage funds, and instead of waiting for the summer, the Rossoneri stepped up the much-needed clearout this month.

    Today, the Rossoneri got rid of two more players, with the out-of-form striker Krzysztof Piatek joining Hertha BSC for €27million plus add-ons, the Serie A outfit confirmed via their official website.

    The 24-year-old Pole has endured a torrid season at San Siro, scoring just five Serie A goals and has found his first-team opportunities further restricted following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to Italy.

    After being deemed surplus to requirements, Piatek has found himself on the radars of several Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham, but has ultimately ended up in the Bundesliga.

    In addition to the former Genoa man, Ricardo Rodriguez has also left Milan to join the Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season.

    Completely left out of the picture since the arrival of Theo Hernandez, the 27-year-old Switzerland international has signed for the Farmers for the remainder of the season, with an option to make it permanent for €4m in the summer.

    The trident has, therefore, followed in the footsteps of Fabio Borini, who joined Hellas Verona earlier this month after struggling to prove his worth to the manager Stefano Pioli.
