There wasn’t much on Arkadiusz Milik in Monday’s Italian newspapers, just a line here or there about Napoli’s need to sell and interest from several clubs.
After Everton being linked repeatedly in recent days, that was largely rubbished by the Naples media on Sunday, with it not thought Carlo Ancelotti sees signing a striker as a priority.
With Jose Mourinho it’s very different, and the manager himself has made it clear he wants a back-up to Harry Kane at Tottenham.
Calciomercato report Fiorentina could now enter the picture, given Juventus interest in Federico Chiesa.
Milik experienced a weekend of ‘pause and rejection’ according to the report, as his representatives tried to find him a new destination. Tottenham is the solution which holds ‘most hope’ after positive talks last week, yet it feels like Napoli and Milik are now waiting for Spurs to return.
A transfer to the London club ‘remains possible’, but ‘isn’t simple’, and that could see Fiorentina move in. Should they sell Chiesa to Juventus, they could then invest some of that money into Milik.
Despite that, Milik’s wages are thought to be an issue. According to Calciomercato, his failed move to AS Roma would have seen a salary above €5m, even after tax.
