Having arrived in north London just a few days before last weekend’s clash with Liverpool, and obviously too late to be registered in Tottenham’s FA Cup clash with Newport County the weekend prior, also ruling him out of Wednesday’s replay, Lucas Moura is still awaiting his Spurs debut following a Deadline Day move from PSG.
But there’s little doubt the 36-cap international is an impressive signing for the Lilywhites, having netted 32 times during his final two full campaigns with the French giants and only lost his regular starting berth to Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – two of the most expensive signings in the history of football.
So with Spurs now preparing to face bitter rivals Arsenal on Saturday, is the coming North London Derby the ideal occasion to finally bring Moura into the first-team fold? He’d certainly give the Gunners a new kind of problem to think about, and his blistering pace could have a massive impact on the vast Wembley pitch.
