There is news in the Chronicle today that Newcastle are tracking 20 year-old Polish International striker Arkadiusz Milik.
Arkadiusz Milik – 20 year-old Polish striker
Milik signed on at German club Bayer Leverkusen in December of 2012 for around £2M, on a contract that runs through the summer of 2018, and he is on loan at Ajax for the full season, and the Dutch club have an option to buy him in the summer.
Newcastle Chief Scout Graham Carr watched Ajax’s 2-0 win over Groningen last weekend, and there were said to be a number of Premier League clubs looking at the 6’1″ striker, who was born in Tychy in southern Poland.
Newcastle do need to bring at least one new striker through the door this summer, so maybe the 14 times capped Polish International (6 goals) is one of our targets?
While playing in the Bundesliga for Beyer Leverkusen, he appeared eight times in the 2012-2013 season before going on loan to FC Augsburg .
But in Holland this season, he has done very well and in 16 appearances he has scored 17 goals.
Milik has played for all the Polish Youth sides and he made his full International debut for the Poland national side against South Africa in October of 2012 – when he was 18.
Arkadiusz seems a decent player and he could be a top target for Newcastle this summer, but if continues his goal-scoring form in Holland for the rest of the season, the Magpies could face some stiff competition for his signature.
Maybe we could get him if Ajax head coach Frank de Boer becomes the Newcastle head coach in the summer?
