Higuain joined Napoli in the summer as part of a £34.5 million deal in the summer as a replacement for Edinson Cavani, who left for Paris Saint-Germain, and though he has adapted well to life in Italy bagging 22 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions, he has attracted some significant interest from several clubs.
Arsenal had been close to landing the Argentine international before he headed to Italy, and the Gunners are now said to be monitoring his situation once again.
But reports in Italy are now suggesting that Napoli could turn to Soldado as the man to replace Higuain should he decide to make a swift exit from the San Paolo this summer.
Spurs paid £26m for the Spaniard last year only for him to struggle for form, and they could now look to cash in on him if a suitable offer comes along.
Spurs technical director Franco Baldini’s position is believed to be under heavy scrutiny from chairman Daniel Levy after the club’s summer acquisitions have thus far failed to live up to the hype, with reports that the north London club could be prepared to sell a number of those signings, including Soldado.
