The Poland international has entered the final year of his contract in Naples and was on the brink of joining Roma before a failure to agree personal terms saw the deal collapse.

Milik was set to join Roma on a season-long loan deal with an obligation to buy for around £16.5m, with further performance-based add-ons included in the deal.

The Independent claim ‘intermediaries working on behalf of Milik are meeting Tottenham officials’ in the hope of securing a similar deal.

Milik is now deemed surplus to requirments by Napoli – who recently signed Victor Osimhen – and they are keen to offload the 26-year-old, who was left out of their matchday squad for their opening Serie A fixture.
