Arkadiusz Milik ‘will be allowed to leave Napoli in January’ as Tottenham and Everton are handed a boost in their pursuit of the Polish striker
- Napoli will allow Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik to leave the club in January
- Milik’s contract expires next summer and he has fallen out of favour at Napoli
- Tottenham and Everton both interested in securing a deal for the 26-year-old
Milik’s contract expires next summer and Napoli are eager to get a fee for him while they still can, as reported by Calciomercato.
The Polish striker has fallen out of favour at Napoli to the extent that he was left out of both their Serie A and Champions League squads, meaning he hasn’t featured at all so far this season.

Milik, 26, is eager to get back playing again and a move to the Premier League would be appealing for him.
Despite the quality that he possesses, getting into a Tottenham side including Harry Kane would be a challenge for Milik. Jose Mourinho’s team also recently signed Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica but could still pursue a deal for Milik.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is also reportedly monitoring Milik ahead of a possible move
At Everton, meanwhile, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has started the season in superb form, although Milik could possibly play alongside him for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Milik joined Napoli from Ajax in 2016 and has proceeded to score 48 goals in 122 appearances. He won the Coppa Italia last season.
On the international stage Milik has 15 goals in 54 games for Poland, and he will be eager to rectify his situation at club level so that he can remain in good shape to feature for his country.
