Gent interested in Kamil Piatkowski after Andreas Hanche-Olsen departs for Mainz

Het Nieuwsblad are reporting that Gent are interested in RB Salzburg’s Kamil Piatkowski following the departure of Andreas Hanche-Olsen to Mainz last week. HNB are reporting that it is likely to be a loan till the end of the season with a purchase option included.

22 year-old Polish defender Piatkowski has only played three league games for the Austrian side this season, despite having joined the side for around 5 million euros from Rakow in the summer of 2021. The defender has been capped three times for Poland since 2021, as well as featuring for the national youth sides.

Piatkowski began his career with Zaglebie Lubin before joining Rakow for free in 2019. The defender has won the Polish cup, as well as winning both cup and league in Austria while with Salzburg. Since joining the Austrian champions he has made 20 appearances, providing two assists.

Gent are looking for a new central defender given the departure of Hanche-Olsen, as well as injury concerns surrounding Jordan Torunarigha.
