Arsenal encouraged in their interest in Napoli striker Milik

Arsenal have been encouraged in their interest in Napoli striker Arek Milik.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Milik will consider leaving Napoli at the end of this season after negotiations over a new contract reached an impasse this week.

The Poland international's contract is set to expire in June 2021, so failure to reach an agreement on a new deal could lead to the forward moving on as a free agent next season.

The Serie A club are thought to have a ready-made replacement in Andrea Petagna. The 24-year-old has been on loan at SPAL since January.

And among clubs across Europe monitoring the developments are Arsenal as manager Mikel Arteta seeks a target-man for next season.
