AS Roma strike agreement with Napoli for Tottenham target Arkadiusz Milik

As per reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano, Serie A outfit AS Roma have struck an agreement with fellow Italian outfit Napoli for the transfer of Arkadiusz Milik, who was a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

The 26-year-old Milik has been with Napoli since 2016, having joined from Ajax. He has grown into a reliable performer for the Partenopei over the years. However, with his contract set to expire in less than a year, there have been plenty of speculations surrounding his future, with Tottenham touted as a suitor of his services.

Given Tottenham’s problems in the attacking third, the interest in Milik is understandable. As things stand, the north London outfit do not have any sort of cover for star striker Harry Kane. And this could’ve been addressed by the signing of Milik.

It had been even claimed that Tottenham had prepared a bumper five-year contract for the Polish international to convince him to move to the club. However, the club’s chances of landing Milik seem to have been scuppered by AS Roma, who have struck an agreement with Napoli for his transfer, as per Romano.

Romano is as reliable as they come when it comes to transfer stories. And he has claimed that Roma have agreed a deal worth €25m, including add-ons, with Napoli to sign the 26-year-old. They are even prepared to offload senior striker Edin Dzeko to make room for Milik, with the ball lying in his court now.
