Milik set for return & new deal?

Arkadiusz Milik could finally return for Napoli this weekend as it is reported he is close to signing a new contract.

Milik has been missing in action for Napoli due to a muscle problem and was linked with several moves away over the summer.

However, Il Mattino assures the striker missed out on the international break with Poland so he could get fit for Saturday’s Serie A match against Sampdoria.

Furthermore, the newspaper writes talks are ongoing to extend his current deal, which expires in 2021.

The Pole joined the Partenopei from Ajax three years ago and has gone on to score 34 goals in 87 appearances, putting two serious knee injuries behind him.

He faces increased competition this season following the arrival of former Juventus hitman Fernando Llorente.
