Tottenham plan Arkadiusz Milik swoop
The 26-year-old Poland international has been with Napoli for four years, after having made the switch to Italy from Ajax back in 2016. He has been a consistent performer for the Partenopei over the years and has enjoyed a solid 2019/20 campaign as well.
Milik featured 34 times across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign, bagging 14 goals in the process.
The striker is in the final year of his contract with Napoli and has informed the club that he has no intentions of penning a new deal. Juventus and AS Roma were reported to be clubs interested in taking him on, but nothing has materialised on that front. (h/t Express)
And now, Tottenham are hoping to capitalise on the Polish international’s situation by making a swoop for him. The report goes on to state that Spurs had been monitoring the 26-year-old throughout the last season and are now ready to launch a move. (h/t Express)

Having lost out on Callum Wilson to Newcastle United and Ollie Watkins to Aston Villa, it is high time Tottenham step up the efforts to bring in a new striker. Going into the new season with Harry Kane as the only centre-forward can prove detrimental to our hopes of a top four finish.
Milik, to that end, would be a fine addition. The Polish international is entering his peak years and has plenty of top level experience in Europe. Signing him would resolve a major issue in our squad. However, given the scarcity of funds, the club might have to offload some of the fringe players before making a move.
