The 26-year-old Poland international has scored 13 goals for Napoli in all competitions this season, ten of which have come in Serie A.

Atletico Madrid who are also interested in signing the forward and have approached Milik’s agent directly but are yet to submit a formal bid to acquire his services, according to the report.

When it comes to his price-tag, Calciomercato reckon that Milik would be available for around €40m as both clubs battle it out in their bid to land the forward this summer.

The Polish striker is on the last year of his contract at Napoli which expires in 2021 and the Naples club would rather cash in on him this summer than letting him leave on a free transfer next summer, according to the report.
