Fulham have joined the race to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, according to reports from Italy.

The Whites are among a clutch of Premier League clubs interested in signing the Polish forward after his proposed move to Roma fell through acrimoniously earlier this week. Tottenham are reportedly the favourites to land the 26 year-old having submitted an improved offer to Napoli and various reports in Italy suggest there will be a meeting between various club officials in London tomorrow to try and thrash out an agreement.

But Newcastle, Fulham and Leeds are all interested in Milik – although there are suggestions on Italian TV that they will struggle to meet the striker’s wage demands and would also need to negotiate down Napoli’s valuation of a player who has refused to sign a new contract with his current deal due to expire in less than a year.

Milik, who has scored 14 goals in 51 caps for his country, burst onto the European scene when he starred on loan at Ajax, scoring 23 goals in 33 appearances for the Dutch giants, who then signed him from Bayer Leverkusen on a permanent basis. He rattled in another 24 goals in 42 matches in 2015/2016 before joining Napoli for £32m in August 2016. Milik has scored 42 goals in 122 appearances for the Italian outfit and scored the winning penalty as they beat Juventus in the Coppa Italia final in June.
