Serie A giants Juventus and Ligue 1 side Marseille are working on extending striker Arkadiusz Milik’s loan stint at Turin.
According to a report by Gianluca Di Marzio, an agreement is fast approaching between Juventus and Marseille for a loan deal of Arkadiusz Milik with an option to buy at the end of the stint.
The Polish striker spent a season-long loan at Juventus last season and was duly sent back to his parent club recently. Milik played a vital role in providing depth and clinical prowess in the attack last season and is well-liked by manager Massimiliano Allegri.
The Bianconeri manager has asked his club to negotiate a second loan spell for the 29-year-old and talks are set to conclude in the next few days.
Optimism is growing on the Juventus side as they are expected to add an obligation to buy to be triggered on achieving certain objectives by the player. Marseille are also happy to let their striker leave for Italy and are also content with the terms set.
