A viable backup for Harry Kane is something that Tottenham have lacked for a long time and, if recent reports are to be believed, the North Londoners have identified Arkadiusz Milik as the man to solve their striker woes (Daily Mail).

Multiple reports have claimed that Tottenham are competing with Juventus for the Napoli striker’s signature ahead of the summer transfer window (SportItalia via Area Napoli).

Calcio Mercato have now provided an update on Milik’s future by revealing that the striker has already agreed personal terms with Juve, with only the duration of the contract yet to be agreed.

It is claimed that the 26-year-old has his heart set on a move to Turin and has made it clear that he will not sign an extension with Napoli.

However, the report suggests that Tottenham may still hold hope of swooping for the Poland international, with Juve and Napoli still some way apart on the striker’s valuation.

The report reveals that Napoli are holding out for €40 million (£36.5m) for the frontman, an amount which the Serie A champions are not ready to pay.

It is claimed that Gennaro Gattuso’s side hope to reach an agreement with Spurs or Atletico Madrid for Milik’s transfer in case Juve do not meet their asking price.

Spurs Web Opinion

Given that Milik seems to be keen on moving to Juventus, I believe the transfer will eventually be completed, with Napoli being forced to accept a reduced fee or a potential swap deal. The Poland international will likely get more game time at Juve than he would at Spurs seeing as they want him to replace Higuain. I do not see why he would want to join us, knowing he is going to be a Plan B.
