Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with a move for Napoli’s Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik.
The 26 year old has notched up 46 goals in 109 appearances for the Serie A side since joining from Ajax in 2016, but with him unwilling to commit to a new contract when his current deal expires next summer, Napoli are willing to sell him now rather than risk losing him on a free transfer in 12 months’ time.
Juventus are interested in buying him, but Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentis does not want to sell the striker to a domestic rival, so much so that he is prepared to offer a discount on his $45 million valuation to a foreign buyer.
United though have just agreed to extend the loan spell of Odion Ighalo until January 2021, whilst Arsenal could be in need of striker reinforcements in case either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, or Alexander Lacazette, or conceivably both, leave the club this summer.
