Juventus and Tottenham are seen to be in continued discussions over the possibility of swapping Mirko Vucinic and Erik Lamela this January.
Both players have been linked with exits this midseason from their respective clubs, after struggles for first-team opportunities through the autumn.
On from earlier reports this week on a possible swap deal, speculation is continuing to suggest today that Juve and Spurs are negotiating terms to exchange forwards.
La Repubblica are the latest to add their line, considering that the two clubs are open to an initial loan exchange for the rest of the season, ahead of a more definitive agreement for the summer.
It is believed that come June, Vucinic would be handed over to the North London outfit on a permanent basis and that to secure Lamela similarly, the Bianconeri would need to find between €23m and €25m.
Lamela only left Serie A last summer when Roma agreed to a €30m sale, whilst Inter and Lazio have both been listed this month as also pushing to take the Argentine star back to Italy.
