Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik for a number of months.
The Mail claimed back in September that the North Londoners were set to meet Milik’s agent and that the club were in talks over a £25million deal to sign Milik as a back-up to Harry Kane.
Spurs instead moving for Carlos Vinicius on a season long loan move from Portuguese giants Benfica.
talkSPORT claimed in November that despite the arrival of Vinicius, Milik could potentially have been a long-term solution for Spurs.
The 26-year-old’s contract in Naples runs out at the end of the season, meaning clubs outside Italy could start commence negotiations for a free transfer from January.
The Polish forward has now completed a loan switch to Marseille where he will link up with former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
Napoli announced on their official Twitter account that Milik will remain with Marseille until June with the French club having the obligation to make the transfer permanent.

Milik had not made a single appearance all season, after being left off Gennaro Gattuso’s squad for both the Serie A and Champions League.
He made his first appearance for Marseille yesterday when he came off the bench in the second half to feature for 31 minutes in their 3-1 loss at Monaco (WhoScored).
