Arkadiusz Milik Celebrating a goal for Napoli
Milik moved to Napoli from Ajax in 2016 however injuries have to a great extent confined him to a back-up role, with his 35 Serie A appearances last season the first time when he has played more than 20 in the Italian top flight.
Dries Mertens is required to sign another contract with the Serie A side and reports have asserted that the Belgium international’s continuation could be a “goodbye ticket” for Milik.
Tottenham have been connected with Poland international Milik for a while in any case, as per Italian columnist Alfredo Pedulla (via Tuttonapoli), Chelsea have now shown interest.
The columnist guarantees that Tottenham are “pushing a great deal” to sign Milik, with Juventus and Atletico Madrid likewise said to be interested.
Milik has one year left on his contract and it is indistinct whether he will sign another contract – if he decides not to, Napoli are apparently quick to offload him this summer instead of hazard losing him for nothing at the end of next season.
Tottenham and Chelsea were both interested to sign attacking reinforcement during the January transfer window.
Tottenham Hotspur lost Harry Kane to a hamstring injury on New Years’ Day and signed Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwijn, no out-and-out striker was gotten.
