CM: Milan cool interest as Napoli hope to sell €40m man to Spurs despite mega Juventus bid

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have cooled their interest in Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik with Juventus having made a big offer, according to a report.

Milik is one of the names that has been repeatedly linked with the Rossoneri over the last few weeks as the club look to sign a new centre-forward ahead of what is likely to be the beginning of a new revolution under Ralf Rangnick.

Tuesday’s edition of the newspaper Tuttosport (via MilanNews) actually reported that Milan are probing the Italian and international market in search of reinforcements, with the distinct possibility that two strikers could arrive and Milik being one of six options.

According to however, Milan showed great interest in March but have now cooled on the Pole, having not launched a real, decisive assault.

Juventus have acted upon their interest by offering Daniele Rugani, Rolando Mandragora and Cristian Romero as possible counterparts. The response of President Aurelio De Laurentiis is clear: Milik leaves for €40million in cash and no swap deals, despite the fact his deal runs out in 12 months.

Juve remain the most keen but Napoli’s real hope is to sell him abroad where Spurs are active in the search for a deputy to Harry Kane. At the moment, though, the north London club have made no offer.
