Transfer News: Tottenham keen on 26-year-old Serie A star who is unsettled

Tottenham Hotspur interested in Napoli star Arkadiusz Milik

According to transfer expert Nicola Schira (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur are keen on Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

The Polish star signed for Napoli from Dutch giants Ajax in 2016. He has since scored  46 goals in 109 appearances for the Partenopei. In spite of enduring an injury-riddled 2019-20 campaign, he still managed to score 12 goals in 22 matches before football was suspended due to the coronavirus.

The 26-year-old’s contract with Napoli expires next summer. He is yet to agree to an extension and has left his future open for interpretation.

Milik will be sold this summer if he fails to agree to an extension. Tottenham have emerged as one of the prospective destinations for the striker. The same was intimated by Schira through his twitter account.

The ongoing talks have not been fruitful. Napoli are keen to avoid the prospect of losing the prolific marksman on a free transfer next summer.

According to Italian publication CalcioMercato (h/t Express), Milik is holding out for a wage hike. He wants to be paid on par with other stars Kostas Manolas and Dries Mertens.

As per the report, Milik currently earns around £2.2million per season. He is seeking an increase of up to £3.6million per season.

Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis is willing to enter negotiations if a club tables a bid of at least £36million. He would be willing to sell the striker outright if Napoli were offered £45million.

Not just money!

The Polish international is also unhappy on sharing his attacking duties with Belgian star Dries Mertens. With the latter set to stay at the club for two more years, the problem is unlikely to go away anytime soon.

The discontentment could prove to be a blessing for Spurs, who are in dire need of a striker. With Harry Kane the only recognized senior forward in the squad, the club is constantly found wanting in his absence.

A move to North London could very well be a win-win for both the player and the club.

Having allowed the likes of Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen leave last summer without signing any replacements, this has come to haunt us this season.

Given our mixed results since Kane’s injury, it is imperative that Tottenham sign a striker. Milik is an experienced player who clearly knows where the back of the net is.

Whether Spurs eventually make a move for him or not remains to be seen.
