Tottenham are interested in signing Arkadiusz Milik but are not willing to meet Napoli’s €40 million asking price for the striker, according to reports in Italy.
Milik scored 11 goals in 26 Serie A appearances this season and would be an ideal deputy for Harry Kane, if Spurs are interested in signing back-up for their talisman this summer.
Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milik’s Napoli future is up in the air, and the Poland international is said to be attracting interest from Juventus and Tottenham.
However, both Spurs and Juventus currently value Milik at less than the €40 million (around £36m) Napoli are asking for, meaning a move for the 26-year-old is uncertain for now.
Tottenham struggled for goals when Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were both sidelined with injuries before lockdown, highlighting the need for another option up front.
But the Londoners may find it difficult – as they have in the past – to attract a striker who is both good enough to play for Spurs and willing to sit on the bench, for the most part, behind Kane and Son.
It will be interesting to see whether Milik is eager to join if Tottenham act on their apparent interest.
