Tuttosport: Blow for Milan and Spurs as Juventus move ahead in race for €50m striker

By Oliver Fisher -

The chances of seeing Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik join Milan this summer have decreased, a report claims, with Juventus leading the chase.

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.

It was recently reported thought that Chelsea and Spurs are also keen on the Poland international, who is valued at €50million by Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis despite the fact his deal expires in 2021.

It was also mentioned that Juventus are keen on Milik, with the possibility of using Romero (currently on loan to Genoa), Rugani and Bernardeschi as counterparts.

According to Monday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), there have indeed been links between Milan and Milik over the last few weeks as they asses their forward department for the upcoming season.

However, it is in fact Juventus who lead all other potential suitors in the race to land the 26-year-old, who looks set to leave in order to find more consistent playing time.
