Roma have emerged as new favourites to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, as part of an exchange deal with Cengiz Under.
Milik had been seemingly determined to join Juventus, but Maurizio Sarri’s dismissal put a spanner in the works of that deal.
According to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, the Poland international is scene as an ideal heir to Edin Dzeko to reboot the squad under new President Dan Friedkin.
Roma may well have the upper hand over some of their competitors for Milik, such as Juve, Milan and Tottenham Hotspur, because they have a player that Napoli are very eager to sign.
Gennaro Gattuso has wanted Cengiz Under ever since he was in charge of Milan and believes the Turkey international would be ideal for his 4-3-3 system.
Jose Callejon has left and the 23-year-old is a perfect replacement down the left side of a trident attack.
Napoli want €50m for Milik, whose contract expires in June 2021, so Under plus around €20m cash could do the trick.
