As reported by The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are set to re-enter negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for attacker Lucas Moura on Monday.
Spurs’ draw with League Two side Newport County this weekend was further proof that the side are severely lacking ideas in the final third and adding more creativity in attack is surely a big priority in the last few days of the transfer window.
One player Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring to the club is Brazilian wing Lucas Moura, who has found himself on the fringes of Paris Saint-Germain’s talented first team.
However, the quest to bring him to London hangs in the balance, with a deal yet to be struck on a potential £22m fee, according to The Daily Mail.
The paper say that despite negotiations restarting on Monday, time is running out ahead of Wednesday’s deadline with the club having to apply for a work permit for the player before he makes his move official.
Lucas Moura was a first team regular in Paris before the club pushed the boat out to sign Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer and despite a lack of opportunities this season, he is still an exciting attacking talent.
Having scored 46 goals and providing 50 assists in five seasons at the Ligue 1 outfit, it’s clear he can provide a big direct goal contribution at Tottenham and provide much-needed support to the reliable Harry Kane.
Still just 25 years of age, he’s coming into his prime years as a footballer and given the reported fee is relatively modest compared to the monster fees paid for some players, the Brazilian could prove to be a bargain if he finds his stride at Spurs.
This is a deal the club should be going all out to secure in the final days of the window.
