Atleti to pounce for Milik?

Atletico Madrid have both reportedly shown interest in Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

Milik has been negotiating a new contract with Napoli for some time, holding out for an extension until 2024 with an improvement on his current €2.5m salary.

While an agreement continues to elude both parties, AS claims Atleti are looking at the Pole as an alternative to Edinson Cavani.

Cavani’s contract expires this summer and the Spaniards are thought to be leading the race for his signature, but they face competition from several Premier League sides.

Therefore, it is possible they could focus on Milik if he fails to agree a new deal at the San Paolo soon.

However, the newspaper assures the Partenopei want to keep him and arm him with a €100m release clause.

The 25-year-old has been in hot form this season, scoring 10 goals in just 12 matches.
