Tottenham reportedly start negotiations to sign star South American winger

According to the Metro, Tottenham have already started negotiations with French heavyweights Paris-Saint German about Lucas Moura, who seems destined to leave Paris after the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The news has been originally published by the French outfit L’Equipe, suggesting Moura’ price tag is around £35 million.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his squad ahead of the Champions League’ promotion battle.

Heung-min Son and Dele Alli need the alternative, and the 25-year-old winger could be the right man for the London’ side.

Moura is known for his pace and acceleration, combined with exquisite technical skills and striking abilities.

Despite having a poor first half of the season, the Brazilian winger is still one of the best players in his position in Europe. Pochettino believes he could help Moura to revive his career by offering him a regular first-team football.

Manchester United have also shown interest for the former Sao Paulo man, but they are now close to signing Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, which could open the door for Spurs to grab Moura this January.
