PSG Star Now Wanted By Tottenham Hotspur: Where Does He Fit In?

Tottenham Hotspur may be making decent progress this season but they haven’t found it easy breaking into the top-4, standing in the 5th place for almost a month now. Mauricio Pochettino will know that he might need some additions to his squad to make sure that they can qualify for the Champions League next season and the ongoing transfer window will give the manager a chance to bring fresh faces to London.

One player now exciting the fans is PSG outcast Lucas Moura.

Transfer story

A transfer target for Manchester United, Lucas Moura has failed to break into the first team regularly at the French capital, after the Ligue 1 giants spent a fortune to bring Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe to the club in the summer. This has pushed him down the pecking order and PSG are willing to let Lucas leave at just £30m.

Manchester United’s interest in Alexis Sanchez has now seen Tottenham Hotspur steal a lead in the race to sign the Brazil winger.

Lucas Moura and his Attributes

One of the quickest wingers in Europe at the moment, the 24-year old moved to Europe for the first time in 2013 with PSG. He did not take too long to cement his place in the first team, and has won four league titles with the French outfit. He has 34 goals and 34 assists in 153 domestic appearances in France but he has managed just 72 minutes of league action this season.

He does have a goal and an assist in this time but at 24, he is looking for regular game time, more so now, to try and help himself to be a part of the Brazil national squad, travelling to Russia for the World Cup later this year.

Often criticised for his final delivery, Moura is a natural dribbler, with gifted control and technique. He can ghost past defenders with frightening ease and is usually calm in and around the box. However, he gets into good positions a number of times but seems to make the wrong decision on a few occasions.

However, he is still a genuine match-winner and his robust and physical approach to his game gives him a chance to shine in the English league.

Chances at Spurs

Mauricio Pochettino has done a decent job with Heung Min-Son as the only natural winger in the squad. The South Korean international has been in decent form this season but Tottenham Hotspur need an established star to help them to Europe this season and probably to some silverware.

Lucas, if moves to London, will walk into the first team under Pochettino and will only add to the quality of the attack. Harry Kane in front of Dele Alli with Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura on either flank, is a mouth-watering proposition but do you think he is the right man for the club?
