Everton targeting Arkadiusz Milik, who could finally replace Romelu Lukaku

Everton are said to be keen on signing the Polish striker in the summer.

Everton are again being linked with a move for Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik. Radio Marte, as relayed by Calcio Napoli, have suggested that Everton will look into signing the player in the summer from February onward. The report also suggests Kalidou Koulibaly and Allan as targets, but considering their price-tags and the other teams keen, those deals seem out of reach.

Milik, however, could be doable. The Polish striker may have 10 goals in Serie A this season but he has largely been used from the bench. Since December he has been starting and has scored six goals in his last five games, showcasing his exceptional talent.

Everton desperately need a new striker. They have not found a regular front-man since selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75 million and Milik seems the best option they have targeted so far.

It is not the first time they have wanted the Napoli player.

In July 2016, Ronald Koeman wanted to bring in the player from Ajax. The Liverpool Echo reported that Milik was being targeted after a failure to sign Graziano Pelle. Both were being eyed as replacements for Lukaku, who ended up staying for one more season at Goodison Park.

 

Milik went on to join Napoli and now Everton could again target him for the striker role.

Of all the strikers that Everton might have a genuine possibility of signing, Milik might be the best out there.

A deal in January is not being considered, but if Everton could snap him up in the summer it would be a fine piece of business for the Toffees.
