With little over three weeks to go until the transfer window shuts, Tottenham Hotspur have still not managed to secure a suitable back up for Harry Kane.
Milik is reportedly one of a number of names on the club’s radar (Football.London), with reports over the past few days suggesting that the North Londoners might be ready to test the waters with an opening offer for the striker (Football Insider).
However, Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia) now suggest that Roma are hoping to beat the Lilywhites to the 26-year-old’s signature.
After seeing their previous offer of cash plus Cengiz Under for Milik being rejected by Napoli, it is said that Paulo Fonseca have now returned with an offer of €15 million (£13.8m) plus a youth team player.
The report suggests that Tottenham consider Napoli’s €35m (£32.5m) asking price for the Polish international to be excessive.

This sounds like a case of waiting to see who blinks first. Napoli have to sell Milik as he has refused to sign a new deal and is into the final year of his contract. So clubs know that Napoli will likely bring their price down towards the end of the window. However, with multiple clubs interested, there is always the risk that someone could swoop for the 26-year-old if Spurs leave it too late.
