Chelsea threaten Tottenham plans for Napoli striker Arek Milik

Chelsea are joining Tottenham in their interest for Napoli striker Arek Milik.

Spurs have identified the Polish frontman as a reliable option who can provide support for Harry Kane, but the Blues are also monitoring the striker and could make a move this summer, reports the Daily Express.

Tottenham have been short on attacking options over the past few seasons with England captain Kane their only reliable out-and-out forward.

The 26-year-old has 17 goals already this term and comfortably passed the 20-goal tally across all competitions in the preceding five seasons, with a highest total of 41 in the 2017/18 campaign.

Italian transfer expert Alfredo Pedulla has reported for Sport Italia that the north London club are pushing for the 26-year-old, but also reported that Chelsea and Juventus are monitoring the situation.

Frank Lampard is searching for a striker who can ease the goalscoring burden on Tammy Abraham and it is claimed Chelsea have asked for information about Milik.
