According to a report by football.london journalist Alasdair Gold, Spurs have ‘looked at’ Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik ahead of the looming 2020/2021 Premier League season – with a back-up striker to Harry Kane now being prioritised before the end of the window.
As detailed by Sky Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham want three more signings in the centre-back, wing and striking positions, but the latter role could be viewed as Spurs’ most crucial problem to fix.
Last campaign, Spurs were heavily reliant on star hitman Harry Kane, but a hamstring injury sustained mid-way through the season left Jose Mourinho’s team bereft of natural centre-forward options.
Who should Spurs sign?
The club released ex-back up forward Fernando Llorente in the summer of 2019 without finding a suitable replacement, and now chairman Daniel Levy and co are reportedly determined to fix the issue.
Serie A forward Arkadiusz Milik, who Spurs have been linked with for a while, is officially on the target list according to reliable correspondent Gold.
The towering 6ft 1 international has scored 38 league goals throughout his stay at the San Paolo Stadium and could certainly possess the physicality needed to play in the Premier League, but his price tag comes at a whopping £26 million.
Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis recently confirmed Milik could leave the club if a suitable offers comes in, but his valuation could be too far out of Levy’s reach – even for a player once likened to Real Madrid star Karim Benzema.
