Milik’s high demands
Everton will have to make Arkadiusz Milik their highest earner if they are to sign the Napoli striker, according to latest reports.
The Blues are linked with the Polish forward along with Juventus, AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspur withclaiming the Premier League sides are at the front of the queue, keen to get a deal done before the transfer deadline.
Milik is apparently keen to secure a move away from Naples after the Serie A side secured a deal for Victor Osimhen, who has become their first choice in attack.
Whether he moves to Everton or Spurs, he could find himself still a deputy to either Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Harry Kane with Napoli said to be demanding around £25 million for the 26 year old.
On top of that,claim the attacker is hoping for a contract worth around £160,000 a week from any side interested in his services.
It’s believed that would make him the highest paid player on the books with the Blues, and so the club may have to reconsider their wage budget if they are to get the deal done.
