Atletico Madrid are considering transferring Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik as the successor to Diego Costa, who has asked to leave the club.

Arkadiusz Milik has long been a foreign in the Napoli project, after failing to agree on a contract renewal, which will expire on June 30th.

Seduced and abandoned by Juventus, very close to Rome at the end of the summer transfer window, the Pole was reluctantly left in the shadow of Vesuvius and now the January transfer window appears as the last chance for Napoli to gain something from the card of his.

As reported by “Marca”, in the last hours Atletico Madrid seems to have gained ground in the race to reach the Pole, following the request of Diego Costa to unilaterally terminate the contract for personal reasons.

In case of parting with the Spaniard, Simeone would only have Suarez in the role of center-forward. Milik would be the perfect alternative, but the biggest problem is the resistance of Napoli, which requires 15-18 million euros for his card.

This figure that “Los Colchoneros” would prefer not to spend on a player who will be free during the summer. Atletico can take advantage of Napoli’s stay not to sell the player to an Italian team.

Milik has not played a match with Napoli since August 8. He is looking forward to being given the opportunity to play, as he intends to be part of the European Championship with Poland in the summer.
