Tottenham are willing to make a move for one of the best strikers of Serie A as they look for further refurbishments in the winter.
Jose Mourinho has got Tottenham Hotspur off to a flying start this season and they do look like silverware contenders after some convincing results, including a 6-1 win over Manchester United at the Old Trafford.
The Lilywhites are looking to add another striker to their present setup in order to beef up their bench strength for the ongoing season. Spurs had been linked with Andrea Bellotti and Danny Ings in the recently concluded transfer window but both strikers reportedly decided to stay with their respective clubs and have managed to waive off interest from the English outfit.
The north Londoners have now started planning for the upcoming winter window and there have been indications that the club will again look to continue their search for a backup striker. Mourinho has had troubles in the past in finding a proper replacement for his senior striker Harry Kane and will be relieved if he finds a decent substitute for the Englishman.
According to the Daily Mail, their sights are now set on Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik. The Polish marksman was also linked with Roma in the summer, but issues regarding Edin Dzeko‘s domino-causing transfer to Juventus did not happen. Spurs have reportedly decided to make a move for the 26-year-old and are now eager to land the player in January.
Currently, the former Ajax man has not featured for the Gli Azzurri in the ongoing season as the striker has been omitted by Gennaro Gattuso amid a lack of clarity regarding his future at the Stadio San Paolo. The player has had to train alone and has been watching his side’s matches from the stands, which seems like an indication that all parties involved are keen on parting company.
Milik’s contract at Naples is set to expire next summer and the Napoli outcast will be glad to switch sides as soon as possible. Aurelio De Laurentiis will reportedly accept any offer ranging from 8 to 10 million euros for the striker, which is definitely a reasonable fee considering his contractual situation but may also be quoted as expensive given that the 26-year-old will be available for free in just eight months more.
Spurs will not hesitate in bringing Milik to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if they are allowed to land the striker for a deflated transfer fee. Jose Mourinho’s side has already had a good start in front of the goal this season and therefore the addition of the striker will help the side in rotating it’s forwards efficiently in the second half of their campaign, especially in the cup competitions when midweek games are plentiful.
