Napoli snap up Ajax striker Milik

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has bolstered his striking options with the signing of Arkadiusz Milik from Ajax for £30 million.

The 22-year-old striker initially moved to the Amsterdam giants on loan from Bayer Leverkusen in the 2014/15 season before making the switch permanent the following campaign.

Milik netted an impressive 21 goals in just 31 matches for De Godenzonen, and the Partenopei are now hoping he can fill the void left by Gonzalo Higuain's switch to Serie A rivals Juventus.

The Poland international, who helped his country reach the knockout stages of Euro 2016 recently, was presented to the Napoli fans on Monday night prior to their friendly against Nice.

Revealing his delight at the move, Milik said on F-MG media: "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."
