Piatek, an absolute transfer bust brought in during Jürgen Klinsmann's ill-fated January 2020 transfer window, has not come anywhere close to finding his feet in German football. Unable to nail down a regular starting space in any of the various coaching regimes, the striker has seen his market value tumble from a peak of €27 million when he joined the capital city side to €12 million today.
No in formation about a potential shared-salary-arrangement with the Serie A side is available at this time. Hertha sporting CEO Fredi Bobic did confirm that Salernitana do have a purchase clause in the loan arrangement. Piatek, recently returned from a loan with Florence in the Series A, remains under contract with his German club through 2025. Bobic called the loan "an ideal solution for all sides."
