According to a report by Goal.com, Napoli are ready to let rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Arkadiusz Milik leave the club for €15 million (£14million) during the January transfer window.
The Polish international was reportedly on the North Londoners’ radar during the previous transfer window but the club instead ended up snapping up Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica.
Milik remained at Naples and the striker, who has only six months left on his contract with the Serie A club has been frozen out of the first-team picture and is said to be keen on departing next month (Gianluca Di Marzio).
Some reports indicated that Tottenham were set to return for the 26-yead-old’s services in January (Tuttomercatoweb) but Fabrizio Romano said last week on the Here We Go podcast that Spurs were not in the running for the striker’s signature.
Goal.com have claimed that Napoli are ready to accept around £14million for the striker but the report suggests that Atletico Madrid are the front-runners for Milik’s signature with his agent set to arrive in Italy to negotiate terms for his client’s departure.
The report reveals that Juventus are also keeping a close eye on the former Ajax man’s situation.

It is interesting that we continue to be linked with various strikers despite snapping up Vinicius on loan in the summer. Perhaps that is a sign that the club are keeping their options open and are open to potential market opportunities, particularly given the fairly steep transfer fee that the North Londoners are required to pay Benfica if they want to make Vinicius’ deal permanent at the end of the season.
