Two days ago, Area Napoli reported Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Arkadiusz Milik is ‘still alive’ after Spurs were linked with the Napoli striker throughout the summer.
Everton and Juventus were also credited with an interest in the 26-year-old after his move to AS Roma didn’t take shape in the last window.
Having failed to get a move away from the Naples club, Gennaro Gattuso has left the attacker out of the list for the league and European competition.
The Poland international is in his final year of contract and Juve have plans of taking him on a free transfer next summer.
According to Calciomercato, the player has made a choice and he wants to leave Napoli in January. The north London club and the Toffees get a mention when discussing ‘the proposals’ he could receive in the winter market.
‘All warned. Tottenham had looked for him and treated him seriously with his agents, an Everton idea was on the list, other options will open in January after the skipped deal with Roma that blocked Milik’s transfer market in the summer,’ states the website.
Napoli, for their part, are open to an ‘immediate sale’ in January, so they can earn ‘minimal’ money rather than losing him as a free agent next summer.
Milik wants to leave the club at the start of next year and Gattuso’s side ‘accept’ his ‘decision’.
Tottenham have signed Carlos Vinícius on loan from Benfica and they may not push for a move for Milik. This could provide Everton an opportunity to sign the Napoli frontman in January, if they are keen on securing his services.
