Tottenham Hotspur are now faced with another potential competitor for Arkadiusz Milik’s signature in the form of Roma, with Corriere Dello Sport reporting that the Serie A club will push for the striker’s signature when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Polish international was reportedly the alternative Tottenham were considering to Carlos Vinicius in the summer (Football.London) before the North Londoners snapped up the Brazilian on loan with an option to buy.

Tuttomercatoweb believe Spurs will return with an offer for the 26-year-old striker in January, with the player currently frozen out of the first-team picture at Napoli after failing to sign a new deal.

However, despite the fact that Milik would just have six months left on his deal in January, a deal looks anything but straight forward.

The Sun reported last week that Everton are also readying a bid for him, with Carlo Ancelotti keen to be reunited with the striker at Goodison Park.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Roma are also ready to offer Milik an exit route from the San Paolo Stadium when the transfer market reopens.

The report reveals that the Giallorossi had agreed personal terms with the former Ajax man during the previous transfer window but failed to settle on a fee with Napoli.
