With Gonzalo Higuain having departed the club, Napoli have returned their attention to Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik, and are ready to make a bid for the 22-year-old. The Partenopei will receive a huge €90 million for the sale of Higuain to Juventus and will be looking to reinvest a part of the sum to find a suitable replacement. According to Telegraaf.nl, Napoli are prepared to offer Ajax €35m for their young prodigy Milik, a figure that could prove tempting even if the Dutch club had previously issued a hands off warning to teams interested in the striker.
Ajax have plenty left to do if they are to book a place in the Champions League play-off round after a dreadful error from goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen helped PAOK claim a 1-1 draw at the Amsterdam Arena. Head coach Peter Bosz named Mateo Casierra and Kasper Dolberg in attack for his first competitive game at the helm and it was the latter debutant who spared Ajax's blushes with a low drive before the hour. The Netherlands international inexplicably dashed out of his area to claim a punt down the Ajax left, where PAOK winger Djalma Campos beat him to the loose ball and finished well on the angle into an unguarded net.
