Milik departure at an impasse as Napoli demand €15m fee amid Inter and Juventus interest

Sky Sport report this afternoon that Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik’s departure from Napoli is currently at an impasse, with both the club’s and the player’s demands too high to facilitate a transfer. 

Azzurri president Aurelio De Laurentiis is unwilling to lower the €15m price tag he has set on the forward, whose contract expires in June. Meanwhile, the player himself is reluctant to take a salary cut in order to make a move to find playing time ahead of this summer’s Euros. 

Nevertheless, there remains interest in the Polish international this January, despite the 26-year-old’s absence from Napoli’s campaign so far this season. According to Corriere della Sera, Inter and Juventus are keeping tabs on the player, although the two clubs are seemingly put off by the club’s high demands.

The Bianconeri are also interested in another outgoing Napoli striker, with Spaniard Fernando Llorente a target of director Fabio Paratici’s as a backup for compatriot Álvaro Morata.
