CM: Milan in pursuit of €50m-rated striker; Spurs and Chelsea readying first offer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are locked in a four-team battle to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in the upcoming summer transfer window, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been strongly linked with a move for Milik by numerous outlets over the last few weeks amid reports that the club’s hierarchy are preparing for a future without Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milik’s future remains a doubt for Napoli as he is a very sought after player at an international level, with a number of top clubs ready to try their look.

The Poland international is on a deal which expires in 2021, and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis would like to keep him, so much so that he will offer him a pay rise from €2.5m-a-year to €4m.

It is an attempt from the Partenopei but at the moment there have not been any positive signs. Milik wishes to be a key man, especially in view of the European Championships which have now been postponed until next year.

For now the president of the Naples club is demanding €50million, yet there is a big risk of losing him on a free transfer. Juventus are keen on Milik, with the possibility of using Romero (currently on loan to Genoa), Rugani and Bernardeschi as counterparts.

Milan are mentioned as having an interest, but the Premier League hypothesis could tempt the 26-year-old, with Chelsea and Tottenham soon to come forward to present their first offer to De Laurentiis.
