Tottenham Hotspur interested in Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik
Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new striker heading into the summer transfer window has taken them to Serie A. According to reputed journalist Nicolo Schira, the Lilywhites are interested in Napoli’s 26-year-old striker Arkadiusz Milik.
Milik has been with Napoli since 2016, having signed from Dutch giants Ajax. During his time with the Partenopei the Polish international has scored 46 goals in 109 appearances. The 26-year-old has had an injury-riddled 2019-20 campaign, but still managed to score 12 goals in 22 matches before football was suspended due to coronavirus.

Milik has only a little over a year left on his current contract with Napoli, resulting in a lot of speculations surrounding his future. And now, Nicolo Schira has claimed that Tottenham are looking at the forward as a potential transfer target ahead of next season.
Spurs need a new striker
It is no secret that our club is need of a new centre-forward before the next season commences. Having allowed the likes of Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen leave last summer without signing any replacements has come to haunt us this season.
A serious injury to Harry Kane left Tottenham’s lack of options exposed. Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn stepped up, but neither are out and out centre-forwards and went on to pick up injuries of their own, causing further headaches to Jose Mourinho & co.

It remains to be seen if our club do launch a move for the Polish striker, who is valued at €50m, this summer.
