Everton are closing in on a move for Cenk Tosun [via The Guardian], but should they consider a bargain move for a second striker too?

In 2016 former boss Ronald Koeman was desperate to sign Arkadiusz Milik from Ajax [Liverpool Echo], before being beaten to his signature by Napoli.

Now Tuttomercatoweb report Milik is available for loan this January.

There is reason for this, as Milik's first season an Napoli was wrecked by a serious knee injury, and he has missed the last three months with a less severe second injury.

Now fit again, Milik is keen to get playing again, with his path blocked at Napoli.

Arkadiusz Milik of SSC Napoli celebrates his goal during the Serie A match between Hellas Verona and SSC Napoli at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi on August 19, 2017 in Verona, Italy.

While quite obviously there may be fitness concerns, Milik could be worth a gamble for Everton as he is highly motivated.

Milik wants to ensure selection in Poland's World Cup squad next summer, and a move to the Premier League could be what he needs.

Still only 23-years-old, Milik netted 21 goals in 31 games for Ajax in 2015/16, and 11 in 21 the previous season, prompting Napoli to spend £30 million on him.

He has 10 goals across his injury plagued 18 months in Italy so far.

While Tosun could carry the workload for Everton, Milik could become a very dangerous option to rotate him with and bring off the bench, and on a loan deal, the Toffees would have little to lose by re-igniting their interest.
