Everton: Toffees fighting Spurs for Napoli star Arkadiusz Milik
Everton are reportedly fighting Spurs to sign Arkadiusz Milik from SSC Napoli in the January transfer window, according to Area Napoli.
As suggested by the news outlet, Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of the Poland international, going back to the days when he used to manage him in Naples, as the Italian boss even claimed that he was ‘sensational’ after a 2-1 win over Lazio.
Should Everton sign Milik?
Milik is apparently convinced that he will leave in January, and with AS Roma and Juventus reportedly out of the race for his services, only the Goodison Park faithful and Tottenham Hotspur remain in the hunt for his signature.
The 26 year-old could be available for as little as €20m (£18m), including bonuses linked to goals and appearances, which could prove to be a great deal for the Merseyside club.
Milik would be a great signing
Indeed, Milik would be a great signing for the Toffees as he would another goal threat up front, which could prove to be useful if the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison are misfiring.
The striker scored no fewer than 14 goals in 35 matches over all competitions for the Naples side in the 2019/20 season, and has also scored 15 times for his country at senior international level (Transfermarkt).
Ancelotti understands Milik
Indeed, having had Milik play under him before, Ancelotti understands his game, and therefore will know how to get the best out of him.
The Premier League can be physically demanding at times, and with his 6 foot 1 inches frame, he could certainly be a valuable asset to the Blues.
