According to reliable Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik after an unexpected last minute collapse of his move to AS Roma – with the club allegedly about to make a decision on whether or not to swoop.
Milik, who bagged 14 goals in all competitions for the Italian outfit last season, has been monitored heavily by Tottenham over the course of this window as per a string of updates.
Fellow correspondent Alasdair Gold recently confirmed that Spurs had been considering a move, with the 51-cap Poland international seemingly on the club’s list of transfer targets along with a plethora of other strikers.
After losing hope over signing him, especially after AS Roma were reportedly inches away from a deal, a huge twist in the race for his signature may have put Spurs in pole position – with Napoli now offering chairman Daniel Levy and co a chance to commence negotiations.
However, there are potential downsides to a move, with his current market valuation being in and around the £28.8 million mark – which could be too high a price to pay for Spurs after they competed a sensational double swoop for Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon recently.
Also, Milik’s injury issues over the last few seasons have been well noted, with any back-up to Harry Kane ideally needing to possess a reliable fitness record.
Whether or not Tottenham take up the offer to snap him up remains to be seen, but it could be an interesting few days ahead.
