The latest reports from Italy indicate that Tottenham Hotspur face an uphill battle to convince rumoured target Arkadiusz Milik to make the move to North London.
Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Milik, with reports indicating that the Lilywhites have already made a player plus cash offer for the striker.
Napoli have made it clear that they will cash in on the 26-year-old, who just has a year left to run on his contract at the San Paolo Stadium, if he does not sign an extension (Sky Sports Italia via Football Italia).
The striker is said to be keen on joining the Serie A champions and linking up in attack with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala.
The report claims that Spurs, as well as Atletico Madrid, have contacted the Poland international over recent days to discuss the possibility of a transfer but have not received a positive response.
It is said that both clubs have a ‘tough mission’ in convincing Milik to turn his back on a move to Juventus.

The fact that Juve want to sign Milik to replace Higuain means that he is likely to be the first choice in Turin next season, unlike at Spurs where he will have to play second fiddle to Harry Kane. Given that his main complaint at Naples seems to be a lack of regular game time, I do not see how a move to Tottenham would appeal to Milik.
