Tottenham plan swap offer for Napoli striker Arek Milik

Tottenham are prepared to make a swap offer for Napoli striker Arek Milik.

The Daily Mail says Tottenham are willing to include Lucas Moura in a deal for Milik with Jose Mourinho keen to secure a back-up to first-choice forward Harry Kane.

Spurs also see the 26-year-old as a potential replacement should the England captain leave the club in the future, amid interest in the Polish attacker from Serie A giants Juventus.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is a known admirer of Brazilian winger Moura and attempted to sign him last year but the move was blocked by Spurs' then manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Portuguese, however, also believes the pair could work well together as he seeks to bolster his side's attacking options.
