Tottenham Hotspur have offered a pre-contract agreement to Arkadiusz Milik which the striker can sign in January ahead of a move to North London next summer, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness).
Milik, who is now in the final year of his contract at the San Paolo Stadium, is reportedly one of a few options that Tottenham are said to be looking at as they seek to sign cover for Harry Kane (Football.London).
It was previously suggested that while Spurs had not given up hopes of landing the Polish international, they considered Napoli’s €35 million (£32.5m) valuation to be too excessive (Sky Sport Italia via Football Italia).
Gazzetta dello Sport now claim that the Serie A side have reduced their asking price to just €25m (£23m) plus bonuses.
However, Tottenham are said to be working on a deal to sign the 26-year-old next summer when he will be a free agent.
It is claimed that Milik’s entourage have now received an offer from Spurs that will see him earn €5m (£4.6m) a year after tax and that he will be free to put pen to paper on the contract in January.
The reports suggests that this could be a ploy by the Lilywhites to force Napoli’s hand into accepting a cut-price deal for the striker.

Hopefully, our poor performance against Everton on Sunday forces the club into acting quickly in the transfer market. Given the crazy schedule we have coming up over the next few weeks, the sooner we can bring in a centre-forward who can take some pressure off Kane, the better.
