Providing an update on Twitter, Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano has relayed comments made by Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis – claiming Spurs target Arkadiusz Milik ‘will‘ be allowed to leave if a bid from either the Lilywhites or another club gets lodged.
The Poland international, who has been looked at by Tottenham in past windows according to reliable football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold, could well leave the San Paolo Stadium this summer following De Laurentiis’ stance on sales.
Addressing the Kalidou Koulibaly-to-Man City transfer saga, with the Italian claiming he can ‘leave the club’ if a right offer comes in, De Laurentiis also said the exact same goes for Milik – who racked up 14 goals in all competitions last season for the Serie A giants.
“Koulibaly can leave the club, yes. If some club will make an important bid, we will let him go on this summer. Same for Arkadiusz Milik,” said De Laurentiis.
Should Spurs re-consider a move for Milik?
Yes, worth every penny of the £27 million
This could potentially give Daniel Levy and co some encouragement over reigniting interest in the towering 6ft 1 forward – especially considering the Lilywhites’ need for a back-up striker to Harry Kane.
Indeed, the club have made no secret of their desire to strengthen in the attack position, with Romano recently claiming that a striker is being prioritised along with centre-back cover and the wing (Last Word on Spurs).
Callum Wilson, Joshua King, Chris Wood, Ollie Watkins and Darwin Nunez have all been touted as options – but given this latest update surrounding Milik – should the Napoli star be re-considered?
Described as ‘sensational‘ by Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti, while he does possess some pedigree, the price tag could be too far out of Levy’s estimations – with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming he could cost a minimum £27 million.
Whether or not the Lilywhites opt to mull over him once again remains to be seen, but Milik does appear to be available for the right price.
