The Polish bomber was able to return to best form after an ACL injury and is now attracting the Bianconeri’s interest.
Napoli’s sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli acknowledged that Arkadiusz Milik had approached the exit of San Paolo, with the Serie A club doubtful of defending the striker.
Milik, 26, joined Napoli from Ajax in 2016 after having an impressive period of work at the Dutch Eredivisie.
However, injury problems plagued his early career in Naples, with Milik having to undergo two operations on his ligaments in less than 12 months after his arrival in Italy.
The Polish international bomber was finally able to complete a full season as Napoli’s first choice in 2018/19, packing 20 goals in all competitions and in 2019/20, he became the top scorer of his team in Serie A with a collection of 10 goals.
His return to the best form has not escaped the attention of other clubs, with Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur later reportedly interested in recruiting Milik.
The situation is complicated for Napoli, because the contract belonging to San Paolo will expire in June next year, so it will be difficult for the club to hold him if the player wants to leave.
“Right now it looks like he might be sold instead of agreeing to a new contract,” Giuntoli told Sky Sport.
“Belonging is a very good player, he has not signed a contract extension with us and therefore has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. It’s not surprising that there are clubs interested in him.”

Juventus reportedly have a great chance of acquiring the Property, and Giuntoli said he would not be surprised if his attackers followed in the footsteps of Gonzalo Higuain who left Napoli to move to a rival team.
“There is no confirmation yet [rumor Milik ke Juventus]”But it will not surprise,” he said.
