Reports in Italy have suggested Everton are in the hunt for Poland attacker Arkadiusz Milik.

The report comes from Italian paper La Gazetta dello Sport. They claim that the Ajax striker has become the number one attacking target for Italian champions Juventus this summer after they missed out on Belgian Michy Batshuayi, who is set to join Chelsea.

However, the Italian report also suggests that Everton are interested, along with Sevilla and his former club Bayer Leverkusen.

The 22-year-old has been in good form for Poland at this summer’s European Championships, which Poland exited at the quarter-final stage last night v Portugal.

His form for his country was a continuation of his form for Ajax, where he scored 21 league goals in 31 appearances last season.

The left-footed attacker, who can play up front or just behind a frontman, would be a shrewd addition from Ronald Koeman – Everton’s new manager.

The Dutchman has succeeded in bringing top talent from the Eredivisie during his time at Southampton – with the likesof Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle and Jordy Clasie.

Milik could have a similar impact as those names should he make a switch to Goodison Park this summer.
