According to reports in Italy, Manchester Manchester United have held talks over a move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

The player was linked with a move to Roma earlier this month. Last week, reports in Italy claimed that Napoli had accepted a €25 million (£22.8m) fee from Roma, but after Edin Dzeko’s proposed switch to Juventus fell through, the Poland international’s future is now uncertain.

The Pole is also been chased by Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur who have already held discussions over a deal for him as Jose Mourinho wants to sign a striker as backup to Harry Kane.

According to Rai Sports reporter Ciro Venerato, United have also made an approach for Milik.

“An intermediary told me that there’s informal talks with Leipzig, Manchester City, Manchester United, Fulham and Tottenham,” Venerato told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“The latter are the most reliable track, but the formula requested by Napoli does not convince Mourinho.”

The Serie A club are open to selling the striker rather than lose him for nothing with his contract set to expire at the end of this season.

The 26-year-old who has scored 48 goals in 122 appearances for Napoli, has been left out his side’s two Serie A fixtures so far this season.
