Tottenham Hotspur target Arkadiusz Milik risks a spot at the Euros if he stays at Napoli
Milik was been sidelined at Napoli by manager Gennaro Gattuso. The striker is yet to feature this season after being left out of their league squad. He is also in the final year of his contract with the Italian giants.
The player himself appeared somewhat relaxed and was ready to move in the summer when his contract expires. However, recent comments by the head of the Polish FA Zbigniew Boniek may force his hand this January.
Boniek revealed that Milik has to move or he won’t feature for the national team next summer. Unless his situation at Napoli improves, the only option he has to play first-team football this season will be to move elsewhere.
“I hope he will find an agreement with Napoli otherwise he risks not going to the European Championship.”
The 26-year-old was a striker Spurs took a look at last summer. We eventually went on to sign Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica. The Brazilian has so far impressed when given the opportunity.
While Jose Mourinho may not be inclined to pish for yet another forward, circumstances could force him to do so. Spurs are well placed to challenge for trophies and the last thing we need is an injury crisis to derail our campaign.
Milik would undoubtedly be a luxury player who will add considerable depth to our attack. While he will still be behind Harry Kane in the pecking order, he will get more opportunities than he currently does at Napoli.

Milik has been with Napoli since 2016 and has been an impressive performer for the Serie A outfit. To date, he has featured 113 times for the club, scoring 47 goals. The 26-year-old featured 34 times across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign, bagging 14 goals in the process.
We will also have to compete against the likes of Everton, Newcastle United, and AS Roma for his signature.
