Polish football legend Zbigniew Boniek, has weighed in on the tough choice that rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Arkadiusz Milik has to make in choosing between moving to the Premier League and joining Juventus.

The rumours linking Tottenham with a move for Milik have intensified over the past few weeks, with the Lilywhites said to be ‘pushing a lot’ to land the striker (Alfredo Pedulla via TuttoNapoli).

Spurs are said to have already made a player plus cash offer to sign the 26-year-old this summer (Tuttosport via Sport Witness).

The Polish international, who has only one year left on to run on his deal has reportedly rejected Napoli’s offer to extend his stay at the San Paolo Stadium (Tuttosport).

The Serie A club’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli has admitted that they will have to sell the striker if he does not sign a new deal (Sky Sports Italia via Football Italia).

Boniek, who now serves as the head of the Polish Football Association insisted that it would be hard for the striker to turn down a move to a club of the stature of Juventus.

When asked where Milik will end up next season, Boniek told Radio Kiss Kiss (as translated by TMW): “I have no news because I have not spoken directly with the player but I also thought that his goodbye to Napoli is possible.

“Premier League or Juventus? They are two difficult solutions to choose from because it is like deciding between two beautiful restaurants.

“In the Premier League, it is nice to play for many reasons but Juventus is the most organized club in the world together with Bayern Munich.

“Sarri – Could it affect the choice? I don’t think the decision will depend on the coach.

“If a player feels strong and actually is, he plays in a team regardless of his coach.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Of the strikers we have been linked with so far, Milik is arguably the one that suits our requirements the best. However, the question is if he will be willing to come to Spurs knowing he is likely to play second fiddle to Kane.
