Tottenham ready to use Lucas Moura in swap deal for Arkadiusz Milik

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to use Brazilian attacker Lucas Moura as a makeweight in the deal to sign Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik from Napoli this summer.

Milik has been with Napoli since the summer of 2016, having arrived from Dutch giants Ajax. He has to deal with a number of injury issues during his time in Italy. However, the Poland international has been in good form over the last two years.

Arkadiusz Milik has scored 13 goals this season

The 26-year-old has played 114 games for the Serie A giants and scored 47 goals, finding the net 13 times so far in the current campaign. His contract expires in a year and has no intention of extending his stay, leading to speculations over his future. (h/t Daily Mail)

Milik has emerged as a key target for Spurs as the club eyes a backup option for star striker Harry Kane. The report also adds that the club sees him as a like-for-like replacement should the England captain opt to leave the club in the future. (h/t Daily Mail)

And in order to land the Poland international, the club are prepared to allow Lucas Moura move the other way. Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is a known admirer of the Brazilian and tried to sign him last summer. But the move was blocked by then manager Mauricio Pochettino.

However, Lucas’ form has tailed off since his heroics in the Champions League last season. The Brazil international hasn’t scored a goal since December last year and has just one assist to show for in the same period.

With Tottenham now ready to let him move the other way, the report states that there is a good possibility of the two clubs coming to an agreement.

However, Milik was reportedly ready to snub Tottenham for Juventus. So this could throw a spanner in the works. It remains to be seen if there is any progress made on this front in the coming weeks.
