The Evening Standard have reported that Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to close the £25 million transfer of Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura before the end of the winter transfer market.
The 25-year-old winger is a player of exquisite quality, but due to the fierce competition in PSG, he is forced to leave Parc des Princes for some regular first-team football to boost his hopes of participating in the upcoming World Cup with Brazil.
The Spurs have been looking to add some additional quality to their attacking ranks this January, with Bordeaux winger Malcom presumed to be the first choice.
However, the Girondins are not willing to give up on the £45 million-rated star, as they are set to battle relegation this season.
Mauricio Pochettino has already pointed out his desire to reinforce his squad if the right opportunity comes across.
Getting Lucas Moura for ‘only’ £25 million could be considered a bargain deal, considering today’s market prices.
