Speaking to Italian radio station Radio Punto Nuovo, via Tuttomercatoweb, Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has confirmed that striker Arkadiusz Milik could leave Napoli, with the reporter saying ‘I know that Milik wants to find a team in January’.
Echoing these reports, another Italian outlet – Area Napoli – has relayed Di Marzio’s update whilst claiming Tottenham’s interest in bringing the forward to north London is ‘still alive’.
Should Spurs sign Arkadiusz Milik in January?

No, don't need him
Milik heading for Spurs?
In addition, another potential boost for Spurs supporters is the rumour that Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis would be willing to accept a figure as low as £6.3m for the Poland international.
Milik was one of the names on Daniel Levy’s wish list in the summer transfer window, with the Tottenham chairman considering him as a back up to Harry Kane (Alasdair Gold).
Eventually, Spurs opted to bring in Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan deal with a £40m option to buy, but these reports now claim Milik may still move to England in January with Spurs keeping a firm watch.
Even though Vinicius and Kane now bolster the striking positions under Jose Mourinho, another option for a potentially meagre seven-figure fee wouldn’t exactly hurt.
Transfer Tavern take
His 6 foot 1 frame, and his endorsement from Carlo Ancelotti as ‘sensational‘, all points to a prolific alternative striking option who fits the Mourinho mould.
Whether or not Levy takes the plunge remains to be seen, but at such a meagre value, there appears to be very little to lose.
