Tottenham is willing to include Lucas Moura in a deal for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik with Jose Mourinho, eager to back up striker 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 Polish striker Serie A giants Juventus.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is a well-known admirer of Brazilian winger Moura and tried to sign him last year, but the move was blocked by Spurs’ then-manager Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the Portuguese also believe that the pair could work well together while trying to strengthen its attack options.
The final decision is up to Milik, but an agreement will likely be made between Naples and Tottenham.
After scoring a hat-trick last year to help Tottenham get to the Champions League final, Moura has been struggling ever since and last scored for the club in December, registering only one assist since then.
