Arsenal are among nine teams scouting Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek, according to Don Balon.

The Spanish publication reports that Real Madrid are monitoring the Polish closely, while the , Liverpool, , , , AC , and Napoli are also keen.

Piatek, who has been dubbed as the “new Lewandowski” by some media outlets, has had a sensational start to the season.

After moving from his native Poland back in July for just €4m, the 23-year-old has scored 12 goals in just seven games. Whether the striker is just having a purple patch, we will have to wait and see.

Playing for Cracovia last campaign, Piatek scored over 20 goals for the first time in his career, leading to Genoa taking a punt on the forward. So far, the gamble has paid off handsomely.

Reports in Italy suggest that the Serie A side have placed a €40m price tag on the striker; ten times what they paid for him just a few months ago.
