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.

They are even prepared to offload senior striker Edin Dzeko to make room for Milik, with the ball lying in his court now.
