Everton look towards €25 million Milik / Do the Toffees need another striker?

Offered around

Arkadiusz Milik has been subject to nothing short of a confusing summer window. A number of clubs have shown interest in the Polish striker.

Juventus had looked interested but soon the deal went quiet. The interest was followed up by Roma but it was short-lived. With Napoli desperate to move the 26-year-old striker on they have been supposedly seeking interest from around Europe.

According to Italian media, Everton are ‘convinced’ by Milik’s profile and would be open to meeting the €25 million valuation.

The Pole scored 14 goals in 35 appearances for the Naples-based club. However, the arrival of Fernando Llorente and the ever-present Dries Mertens leave Milik surplus to requirements and a sellable asset for the club.

Everton transformed

3 wins from 3 games for Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton has seen the club touted as early top four contenders this season.

With the links to Milik, some have questioned whether Everton need to spend further money on the Pole. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored 5 goals in the opening 3 games.

The Toffees have been looking to offload Moise Kean with Juventus the supposedly interested club.

Even so, Ancelotti would have Calvert-Lewin along with Richarlison, Cenk Tosun and Sandro Ramirez. The latter two are unlikely to see much game time but the Milik profile presents as a more physical presence.

Many teams look to have plan B options. Chelsea with Giroud and Manchester United with Ighalo for example. Everton may see Milik as the option they need in tough situations and where a late goal could be scored through increased aerial pressure.
