Juventus agree terms with Milik, casting doubt on Higuaín future
Juventus are on the verge of snapping up Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik with Gonzalo Higuaín edging closer to the exit door after five seasons in Turin.
Juventus could be getting closer to landing Arkadiusz Milik, casting doubt on the continued presence of Gonzalo Higuaín in Turin. After winning a ninth straight Serie A title with Cristiano Ronaldo ending the season as Maurizio Sarri's top scorer, Juve are being linked with several forwards.
Paulo Dybala has been used in a central role this season while Higuaín, Juventus' only out and out striker, has chipped in with 10 goals in 41 appearances. After loan spells with Milan and Chelsea, it appears the Argentinean may be close to a permanent Turin exit.
Juventus agree terms with Milik
Juventus have agreed preliminary terms with Napoli forward Milik, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
However, the report says Juve are yet to reach an agreement with Napoli, who are said to have expressed an interest in Federico Bernardeschi.
Milik, 26, has scored 14 goals in 33 games in all competitions for Napoli this season.
