Tottenham Hotspur are still showing interest in Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik but will face competition from Juventus this summer, according to Calcio Mercato
The Napoli striker received heavy criticism from portions of the Italian media following his performance against Bologna on Wednesday night when the outlet labelled him as ‘poorly involved’ in Napoli’s project for the future.
The Italian new source claims that Spurs and Juventus ‘continue their race’ in monitoring the situation of Milik and both could make a move for the 26-year-old this summer.
However, other clubs have been linked with the Serie A striker who has scored 10 goals in 23 league appearances this season (Transfermarkt).
Although it is claimed Spurs still hold an interest in the Polish striker, it is clear no official bid has been made by the Lilywhites.
With only one year left on his contract with the Italian side, it is a possibility we could see Napoli allow the striker to leave in order for the Serie A side to recoup some transfer funds rather than seeing him walk away a year down the line.

Only half of Milik’s appearances in Serie A have come from the starting XI so a goal in just under every other game is not necessarily a bad record. We desperately need a back-up striker for Harry Kane. As it stands, Kane has to play every minute of every game as we do not have anyone able to come on and fill in for his position.
