AC Milan star reveals Arsenal strikers he idolised as a fan

Krzysztof Piatek has revealed he was an Arsenal fan as child and picked out the two Gunners forwards he idolised.

Piątek has scored ten goals since he joined Milan from Genoa for £31million at the start of this year

Since the start of the 2016/17 season, Piątek has found the net a total of 64 times first in the Polish league, then in Serie A.

Piatek told Italian newspaper Tuttosport about his childhood, where he followed the Premier League.

“As a child I was an Arsenal fan, I really liked Wenger’s team playing style and admired champions like Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp,” he said.

The 24-year-old may not have reached the heady heights of Henry or Bergkamp yet, but he has drawn the attention of a number of other European giants.

Perhaps one for Arsenal to keep an eye on.
