An intermediary has now arrived in England to hold negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur over a transfer for Arkadiusz Milik.

Friday’s print edition of the Corriere dello Sport claims that the intermediary will work with Jose Mourinho and Tottenham to try and iron out any issues in their quest to sign the Napoli forward.

Friday’s print edition

Mourinho has previously admitted that he is keen to add another striker to his ranks ahead of the transfer window closing on October 5th (Evening Standard).

Milik scored 14 goals in 35 games across all competitions last season for Napoli and is now into the final year of his contract with the Serie A side (transfermarkt).]

The Polish international set to join fellow Italian side Roma in a deal worth around £22million before the move stalled due to the future of former Manchester City player Edin Dzeko (Gazzetta Dello Sport).

Dzeko was close to joining Juventus before the Serie A champions completed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid.

  1. From the opening of the transfer window the critique I have been pushing is that without signing a center back and a striker, Spurs will be in groundhog day. Spurs fans are now far too cynical to believe anything but seeing a player in a shirt and standing in the stadium. As usual, the signs are not exactly good.

    We have a luxury signing in Bale which has real benefits but we need to think with our heads rather than our hearts. We have a wing back and we have a goalkeeper who was the lowest of low hanging fruits. As good as all of this may seem, Spurs fans have known for the past three years that a center back and a striker is what we need. Transfer windoh after transfer windoh, we are teased with names, informed that the board are £20 million away from the asking price for the player, watch as ‘negotiations’ drag on and then it all falls apart on the last day because we are £5 million short of a price that would get a deal.

    Have things changed? Could it be that our new manager, the most successful manager ever employed by Spurs, is pushing the board to make the right signings? Hey, I have an idea, let’s see how long we can all hold our breath. I am, as a devoted fan, baking a humongously large humble pie which I am prepared to eat in one sitting if we get a center back and a striker before this windoh closes.

    One caveat, I am not setting a place at the table if we end up with a ‘promising’ kid and an over the hill second best option; we need the right quality before the spoon and custard comes out!
