Napoli have acted swiftly to replace Gonzalo Higuain by completing the signing of Ajax forward Arkadiusz Milik.

The 22-year-old Poland international, who scored his nation's winning goal against Northern Ireland at Euro 2016, was unveiled to supporters ahead of a pre-season friendly against Nice.

The Serie A side have not revealed the precise details of the deal, but club president Aurelio De Laurentiis took to Twitter to welcome his latest acquisition to the club.

Argentina striker Higuain became the third-most expensive player of all time when he made the switch from Napoli to Juventus in a €90m (£75.3m) deal last week.
