Pedulla: Juventus and Spurs make serious offers for Milik

Juventus and Tottenham have made ‘serious offers’ for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla claims.

The transfer expert was speaking about Napoli’s transfer market plans on SportItalia, saying they would have a big summer.

However, Milik appears to be on the way out after refusing Napoli’s offer of a contract extension.

Napoli have told Milik that he won’t be allowed to run his contract down, making a sale inevitable.

Juventus have made the 26-year-old Polish striker their main target to replace Gonzalo Higuain.

However, Jose Mourinho’s Spurs are also very serious about Milik, who has scored 10 goals in 17 Serie A appearances this season.

Milik’s preference is to join Juventus but everything will come down to agreeing a fee with Napoli.

As Pedulla explained, Napoli want €50m, a high amount for a player entering the last year of his contract.

“There won’t even be offers of €35m or €40m for Milik,” Pedulla said. “Nobody wants to invest a lot of money in a player who will be free in 12 months.”

At the moment, Napoli have not opened the door to swap deals either, making it a difficult negotiation.

Atletico Madrid and Arsenal have also been linked with Milik in recent media reports.

Milik out, Osimhen in

The Naples club want a big sum for Milik that they intend to use towards signing Lille striker Victor Osimhen.

The 21-year-old Nigerian has emerged as one of Ligue 1’s best attackers with 13 goals this season.

And Osimhen, a player attracting widespread interest, is the man Rino Gattuso wants to replace Milik next season.

Meanwhile, Pedulla revealed that Napoli expect Jose Callejon to sign a short-term contract extension until the end of the season.

Callejon, 33, will more than likely return to Spain this summer with a number of La Liga clubs vying for him.
