Arsenal lining up move for Napoli striker Arek Milik

Arsenal are lining up a move for Napoli striker Arek Milik.

La Repubblica says Arsenal are in pole position to land the 26-year-old this summer, but face a fight from a number of Premier League clubs.

The Poland international is appearing unlikely to extend his contract beyond its current 2021 expiry date, and he may look to follow the path of his former mentor and Arsenal icon Denis Bergkamp - who he worked closely with during his stint at Ajax.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is prepared to cash-in on the Pole for an offer below their original £45m asking price.

The Gunners may be more in need of reinforcements than their Old Trafford rivals, with wantaway skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette nearing the exit door.
