Marseille in Milik talks

Marseille coach André Villas-Boas has confirmed the Ligue 1 side are in talks with Napoli over a move for Arkadiusz Milik.

Milik seemed set to leave the Partenopei last summer, but moves to both Roma and Juventus fell through and the Poland international was not registered to play in Serie A.
