The Poland international has been linked with a move away from the Milan-based club ever since the arrival of veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free-transfer.

There have been reports of interest from Roma in Piatek as they continue their hunt for a striker who can play a backup role of first-choice forward Edin Dzeko.

As per the latest report, both Milan and Roma had discussions over a possible swap which would have included Piatek and Diego Perotti changing their respective clubs.

However, the deal was rejected by the 24-year-old who is not eager to play a role of a backup striker at Roma.

Piatek has been at Milan since January 2019 when he moved from league rivals Genoa for a reported transfer fee of €38 million.
