Sky Sports: Tottenham ‘unlikely’ to meet striker’s valuation, could wait until January

Tottenham Hotspur are ‘unlikely’ to meet Napoli’s £32.5 million valuation of striker Arkadiusz Milik and may wait until January to try and land the Polish forward on a pre-contract agreement, according to Sky Sports.

Spurs are clearly in the market for a new centre forward and the Poland international has been touted as a potential new arrival in North London.

However, Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has stated Tottenham are unlikely to meet Milik’s valuation due to the Napoli man being in the final year of his contract with he Serie A side.

Spurs are overly reliant on Harry Kane in the final third and Jose Mourinho has openly admitted that he wants the club to sign another striker before the transfer window closes early next month.

A host of names have been listed in the press as potential arrivals and Milik would certainly be an exciting proposition given his scoring record for Ajax and Napoli.

However, there clearly are questions marks over the financials and Tottenham spending in excess of £30 million on anyone with the current state of play seems unlikely to happen.

Sheth also stated in the report that Spurs were keeping an eye on Red Bull Salzburg forward Patson Daka and Watford’s Troy Deeney.
