Lazio & Torino Both Keeping a Close Eye on Olympique Marseille Forward Milik

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are continuing to follow Arkadiusz Milik ahead of the summer transfer window but they’ll face stiff competition from Torino.

The 28-year-old Polish forward is having a good season for Olympique Marseille but could easily make a return to Serie A in the summer, as he reportedly has a €12 million release clause in his contract, making a deal for a proven goalscorer very accessible in today’s market.

As reported by Tuttosport (via LazioNews24), Lazio have been fans of Milik for some time as a possible backup or rotation option for Ciro Immobile and they are debating pulling the trigger on a deal in the summer, but now they’ll have to overcome competition from Torino, who are looking to replace Andrea Belotti.

Torino’s alternatives to the Olympique Marseille man include Cagliari forward Joao Pedro, who would cost around €7 million, and Hellas Verona striker Giovanni Simeone, who would be more expensive at €20 million.

Milik has scored 20 goals and provided one assist in 31 games across all competitions so far this season for Olympique Marseille.
