Milik left off Napoli squad lists

Napoli named their squad for the Serie A and Europa League tournaments, with Arkadiusz Milik not included on either of them.

The striker’s contract is due to expire at the end of this season and he had been on the verge of moves to Roma and then Fiorentina, but they never materialised.

He was warned that if he did not accept a transfer, he’d be left in the stands, and the club seems to be following through on that promise.

Milik is not named in the Serie A squad list or the group of players who can take part in the Europa League group stage.

Fernando Llorente is in the Serie A side, but not the UEFA one, where he misses out along with Milik and Kevin Malcuit.

That is also because Napoli’s UEFA list is shorter, as they only have two – Lorenzo Insigne and Nikita Contini – who qualify as homegrown players.
