Tottenham Hotspur have been continuously linked with a move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in recent weeks.
The Polish frontman, who once had a trial period at Tottenham, is being considered as a potential recruit for Spurs as a proper alternative to Harry Kane.
The striker is out of contract in a year and that appears to be attracting Tottenham to a deal, with the hope he might be available for a reduced price-tag.
New reports are now suggesting that Tottenham could consider a swap deal to try and bring the striker to North London.
As reported in the print edition of Corriere dello Sport (as relayed by Area Napoli), Tottenham could reportedly consider sending Lucas Moura in the opposite direction to get a deal done.
It has certainly caused a stir among Tottenham fans on Twitter.
Moura is a popular figure at Tottenham for obvious reasons. The Brazilian was the hero in Amsterdam last season, scoring three goals against Ajax to secure Tottenham’s place in the Champions League final. So plenty of Tottenham fans are not happy about the idea of Moura leaving, in fact, some even suggested Erik Lamela should be offered out instead.
However, others are happy at the idea. Moura has struggled for form throughout 2019-20 and with Steven Bergwijn excelling since his arrival from PSV Eindhoven, there is certainly a belief that Moura might be worth sacrificing if it means that Milik heads the other way.
Here is some of the best reaction from Tottenham fans on Twitter to the news that Moura and Milik could be swapped.
Rather have Ings

Lucas is a squad player. His place in squad could be replaced by likes of Fraser or Edwards or Eze. Milik from what I’ve heard about him, would be good squad cover up front. We are desperate for another striker option.

Mentioned this swap a while back. Milik is injury prone but seems to have recovered well now and his numbers are and have always been ?. Would be very keen on this tbh, but I’d look at a Daka/Édouard first https://t.co/mqBcQ6nazJ
