Napoli agree deal for Higuain replacement

Following the disappointment of losing Gonzalo Higuain to Serie A rivals Juventus, Napoli have moved swiftly to replace the striker and have agreed a deal to sign his replacement according to reports in the Netherlands.

De Telegraaf claims that the Italian club have agreed a €35million deal with Ajax for the signing of Arkadiusz Milik.

The 22-year old will sign a five-year deal with last seasons Italian runners-up, whilst also becoming the most expensive Dutch transfer in history, eclipsing the €27million that Real Madrid spent on Wesley Sneijder in 2007.

Milik moved to the Dutch club last summer on a €2.8million move from Bayer Leverkusen and went on to score 24 goals in 42 appearances for the Eredivisie runners up last season.

He was involved in Polands Euro 2016 campaign where he played every game, scoring one goal, before the country were eliminated at the quarter final stage.
