Juventus reach agreement with Marseille to sign Arkadiusz Milik

RMC Sport report this morning that an agreement has been reached between Juventus and Marseille for Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik to join the Bianconeri on a loan deal with a permanent option.

The Serie A side will pay an initial €1m for the striker’s season-long loan, and will have the opportunity to shell out another €7m to secure the striker’s services afterwards, with the permanent clause not being an obligation. L’Équipe report that the figures are €2m and €8m, and add that the forward is currently on his way to Italy for his medical.

The Pole scored 30 goals for Marseille during his year and a half at the club, but is not necessarily in Igor Tudor’s plans and wants to find more playing time ahead of the World Cup. He now returns to Serie A, having already spent four seasons at Napoli where he found the net 48 times before his relationship with the club ended on a sour note.

Marseille also have no intention of going into the market for a replacement, with the club judging their options up front to be sufficient, laying rest to any rumours of a move for Cristiano Ronaldo.
