Juventus Strike Agreement with Marseille for Marksman Milik

Juventus have reached an agreement with Olympique de Marseille for the signing of ex-Napoli marksman Arkadiusz Milik, as per the latest reports from Gianluca Di Marzio. The Bianconeri have seen advances for Memphis Depay and Alvaro Morata fail, but the former remains in the picture. However, the choice will largely depend on the decision of coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The Juventus upper management is expected to sit and discuss with the manager regarding his requirements of a back-up striker. Of the two, Milik looks like a real certainty to arrive in Turin following advanced negotiations between Juventus and OM in the past couple of days.

An initial loan agreement worth €2M with the option to buy permanently at the end of next season for €8M has been struck between the two parties.

The Bianconeri have had eyes on the Pole since he was at Napoli, but never could materialize a deal to get him onboard. That is bound to change in the coming hours if Allegri signals his green light.

Our Take on Milik to Juventus

Milik has already proven to be a decent player in Serie A, and could very well perform as expected second-in-line to Dusan Vlahovic when needed. He is a commanding presence upfront, making his signing worthwhile as per Allegri’s needs.
