Transfer report: Juventus ready to take on Everton and Leicester for Ajax star after impressive Euro 2016

1 Jul

Juventus are weighing up a summer move for Leicester and Everton target Arkadiusz Milik.


The Ajax striker’s stock has risen following a string of impressive performances for Euro 2016 quarter-finalists Poland in France.

It was reported that Leicester had opened talks about signing the striker back in May before his exploits at the Euros, while Everton were said to have had a cash bid rejected.

However, there is now stiff competition to sign him from across Europe and Juventus could be about to firm up their interest with a bid.

The Serie A side are in the market for a new striker after Real Madrid activated their buy-back option on Alvaro Morata and they reckon Milik could help fill the void.

The 22-year-old, who played in all five of Poland’s game at the Euros, scored 21 goals in 31 Eredivisie outings last term, taking his league tally to 32 in 52 since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen in May 2014.

But the Gazzette dello Sport reckon Juve, Leicester and Everton are joined by Lazio, Roma, Sevilla and former club Leverkusen in the race for the £15m-rated striker.
