DONE DEAL: Napoli sign Higuain replacement

Napoli have completed a €35million deal for a striker tipped to become the replacement for Gonzalo Higuain, who left the club recently to join Juventus.

The Argentine moved to the Serie A champions for around £75million, leaving the Italian club short on attacking options, but they have moved swiftly and decisively to complete the signing of Arkadiusz Milik from Dutch club Ajax.

The Polish striker scored 21 goals for Ajax last season as well as one for Poland and this summers Euro 2016 competition.

The 22-year old said:

It’s an honour I will become a part of Napoli with its amazing fans full of passion, a great club with a glorious history. I want to make these fantastic Napoli fans happy.

He was welcomed to the club by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis via Twitter:
