As such, they have been associated with a move for Icardi from Inter Milan but Amoruso believes there is no need for the Argentine with Milik present in the ranks, he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: “Napoli already has a great striker in the shape of Arek Milik, who remains one of the best strikers in Europe.

There is talk of Icardi but I would keep Milik, who I prefer as a striker.”
