According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are leading the chase for Paris-Saint Germain outcast Lucas Moura. Real Betis and Arsenal are also interested in signing the 25-year-old forward.
The Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his squad ahead of the second half of the season, but he is hesitant to spend big this January.
However, Moura’s £35 million price tag is a bargain, considering today’s market prices, which could persuade the Argentine pushing for the transfer.
Heung-min Son and Dele Alli both need a quality alternative after poor performances from Moussa Sissoko.
The Brazilian winger possesses tremendous quality, but unfortunately, he has been unable to find his space in Unai Emery’s squad due to the fierce competition.
Lucas Moura is known for his pace and acceleration, combined with excellent technique and powerful long-range shots.
The former Sao Paulo player could be the right option for Tottenham, as London team is expected to battle on two fronts this year.
