Arsenal may consider a move for Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik next summer, according to Calciomercato.it.

The Polish international was signed for €32m from Ajax last year as a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain, who left for title rivals Juventus. The 23 year old started last season as the the Partenopei’s first choice centre forward but a knee injury in October left him out of the first team.

In his absence, winger Dries Mertens took his place, and went on to score 34 goals by the end of the last campaign. The Belgian international’s transformation into a prolific striker has left Milik warming the bench.

Calciomercato.it report that the Pole won’t accept remaining as a substitute and will look to move on as soon as possible. Napoli won’t sell the striker to another Serie A side after Higuain’s controversial switch to Juve, which rules out Inter (who have had a past interest in the player).

The Gunners, Tottenham, Schalke and Borussia Dortmund are said to be the four clubs monitoring Milik’s situation at the Serie A club.
