Moving to Tottenham is an ‘option’ for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, according to reports in Spain.
Milik was linked with Spurs (via the Express) in the most recent summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho search for a new deputy for Harry Kane. The Londoners instead ended up signing Carlos Vinicius from Benfica on loan with an option to buy.
Meanwhile, Milik remained at Napoli and has now entered the final year of his contract. He will be allowed to speak with foreign clubs in January about a free transfer next summer.
And it sounds like joining Tottenham is still a possibility for the Poland international.
Spanish outlet AS claims Atletico Madrid have entered the race to sign Milik, but the 26-year-old also has Spurs and Everton as options.
Milik being available for free certainly makes this one an enticing option for Tottenham. A move for him may depend on Vinicius’ success at the club.
If Vinicius continues to prove useful for Spurs in the Europa League, Spurs are likely to take up their option to buy him, meaning they would likely ignore Milik.
But surely Daniel Levy will be keen to secure a capable out-of-contract striker if Vinicius goes back to Benfica next summer.
