Napoli are exploring the possibility of a swap deal involving midfielder Amadou Diawara and Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier, according to reports in Italy.

Trippier has struggled to rediscover his best form for Spurs this season despite impressing for England at the World Cup last summer and has been linked with an exit.

Both Napoli and Manchester United have been tippied to move for Trippier, who is apparently valued at £40 million by Tottenham.

And according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato Web, the 28-year-old is one of two full-backs Napoli are tracking ahead of the summer transfer window.

The report goes onto claim Napoli could offer Diawara – a central midfielder Spurs have been linked with in the past – in exchange for Trippier.

Tottenham will almost certainly be in the market for new central midfielders this summer due to the lack of depth in the middle of the park.

Whether the Londoners are still interested in Diawara is a source of speculation – the 21-year-old has made just 13 league appearances this season.

Would swapping Trippier for Diawara be a good deal for Spurs? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
