Tottenham are considering making a swap-deal bid for Lazio playmaker Hernanes with the Serie A club reportedly keen on Spurs striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.
According to tribalfootball.com, Tottenham have made enquiries into the availability of Brazilian Hernanes, who has struggled to replicate his sparkling form for Sao Paulo in Italy.
Meanwhile, Lazio are reportedly eager to take Russian forward Pavlyuchenko to the Stadio Olimpico and some form of swap deal could be proposed that would see Hernanes heading to White Hart Lane.
With Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe forming an effective partnership up-front, Pavlyuchenko's chances are becoming increasingly limited and a move away could occur as soon as January.
Arsenal were also thought to be keen on the 26-year-old midfielder, who was being touted as a possible replacement for Cesc Fabregas, but the Gunners opted for Mikel Arteta.
