Spurs likely to strike agreement for Napoli star


It’s set to be a big summer for Tottenham Hotspur.

With the North London side way off the pace in their pursuit of a top four finish, it’s inevitable that a big summer in the transfer market beckons.

Jose Mourinho’s side are nine points behind fourth-place Chelsea at present, and with just seven games left it’s likely that they’ll miss out on a place in the Champions League next term.

That means that recruitment needs to be perfect if they’re to get themselves back on track next term.

One position where the club need to strengthen is in attack.

Harry Kane has single-handedly been leading the line for too long and Spurs would certainly benefit from another option to ease the workload on the Tottenham talisman.

That man might not be Arkadiusz Milik.

GiveMeSport exclusively revealed that the North London side were considering a part-exchange for the Napoli forward, with Erik Lamela tipped to go the other way.


However according to the Daily Mail, it’s Lucas Moura who could be heading for Naples.

The Italian side are said to be big admirers of the Brazilian, and given his mixed form under Jose Mourinho he could be used as a makeweight in such a deal.

A swap deal could be a plausible option, however Napoli are also open to a deal in the region of £35-45m to get it done.

It’s claimed that a deal is likely to be struck, with only the specifics to be ironed out.

GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…

This could certainly be one to watch for Spurs fans.


A move for Arkadiusz Milik would certainly be quite the scoop given the club’s struggles on the pitch.

Tottenham will have been targeting a place in the Champions League next term, however that now seems unlikely.

As a result, it means that Jose Mourinho’s side may struggle to compete for the best players in the world with many prioritising a chance to play in Europe’s elite competition.

However if they can convince him to join, it could be just the boost that they need to put themselves back in contention next term.
