Juventus have already loaned Polish striker Arkadius Milik from Ligue side Marseille, announcing their purchase on Friday for 7 million euros ($6.9 million). The Italian club pay Marseille 900,000 euros this season, which could rise to .7 million euros depending on certain targets achieved. With Juventus in their group on Thursday, Milik will have the chance to take on Marseille’s arch-rivals Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

He has extensive Champions League experience, making 9 appearances and scoring goals.

He pair up front with young Serb Dusan Vlahovic and replace Spains Alvaro Morata, who is due on loan at Atletico Madrid.

Milik is no stranger to Serie A, having played for Napoli for four and a half seasons, scoring 38 goals in 93 appearances before joining Marseille in 2021.

His time at Napoli was marred by two serious knee injuries, and he was ruled out of the team for the final six months of his tenure after refusing to sign a new contract.

Milik scored 20 goals in all competitions for Marseille last season but his relationship with then manager Jorge Sampaoli was strained.


SampaoliR7;s departure and the arrival of Croatian Igor Tudor were not enough to convince him to stay at the club, although they also have Champions League football to look forward to.
