Arsenal have reportedly entered pole position in the race to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, according to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, as quoted by The Daily Star.
The Gunners are at the front of the queue to sign the Poland international to find a potential replacement for captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in this summer’s transfer window.
The Serie A champions Juventus are also interested in a swoop to sign the 26-year-old striker in order to bolster their attack ahead of the next season.
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis wants to avoid selling Milik to domestic rivals Juventus and would rather offload the frontman to a club outside of Italy.
The Italian media outlet suggests that Partenopei would be prepared to sell Milik to another club below their €50million asking price.
The Polish striker has chalked up nine goals in 16 Serie A outings this term.
Milik joined Napoli from Ajax in 2016.
