Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly prepared to offer Erik Lamela, Juan Foyth, or Victor Wanyama to AC Milan as they seek to land Krzysztof Piatek before the transfer window shuts.
Spurs have been linked heavily with a move for Piatek right from the start of the month (the Sun) but a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by the Daily Mail) reveals that Tottenham have now stepped up their efforts to land the Polish international.
The report claims that AC Milan are demanding £25million for the striker, which Spurs aren’t too keen to meet at present.
It is alleged that they have instead offered the Italian giants the chance to sign any of Victor Wanyama, Juan Foyth, or Erik Lamela as a part of the Piatek deal.
While Foyth and Wanyama have hardly featured under Jose Mourinho, Lamela has been involved in almost every game since his return from injury.
However, the report asserts that all three players are surplus to requirements at Spurs and that Mourinho is open to letting any of them leave as long as Spurs can land Piatek before the end of the month.

While I would certainly be in favour of using Wanyama has a makeweight in the deal to land Piatek, I am not particularly sure that it would be a wise move to sell Lamela or Foyth. I would prefer for the club to loan Foyth out rather than selling him permanently while our squad is nowhere near deep enough especially in attacking areas for us to consider selling Lamela.
