Report: Spurs could re-open talks in January with previously-linked forward
A report by Football.London suggests that Tottenham Hotspur could re-open talks with Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik about snapping him up when he becomes a free agent next summer.
Milik was heavily linked with a move to Spurs in the summer (CalicoMercato) but the Polish international ended up staying put at the San Paolo Stadium, with the North Londoners instead making a move for Carlos Vinicius from Benfica on a season-long loan, with an option to take him on a permanent basis.
It remains to be seen if Spurs will exercise the permanent option on Vinicius but Milik seems destined to leave Naples sooner rather than later, with reports indicating that the Serie A club would be prepared to sell him for €7m (£6.3m) during the January transfer window (AreaNapoli).
Reports from Italy have suggested that the 26-year-old is desperate to leave the club in January after being frozen out from the first-team, rather than waiting until next summer (Gianlucadimarzio).
Football.London claim that Spurs may be looking at various free-agents they can land on a free next summer and Milik is one of the names that is likely to be on the club’s radar since the striker was ‘the number one attacking target’ for Jose Mourinho’s side in the summer.
