Lucas Moura has signed a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur, the club have confirmed.

What’s the word?

The Brazil international has been with the club since 2018, when he joined from PSG in the January transfer window.

And, after a season in which he scored 15 goals in all competitions, including an iconic hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final victory over Ajax, he has extended his stay at the club until 2024.

Lucas has made a total of 60 appearances for Spurs and now has another five years as he attempts to potentially scale the heights of his brilliant treble against the Dutch giants.

Has to be the first of many

Spurs need to lock down a few more players.

Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld all have contracts that expire next summer, meaning that the three former Ajax stars could walk away for nothing at the end of the season.

Lucas, of course, deserves this new deal after his exceptional performances last season but they need more.

Premiership Picks

Of course, Eriksen could well still depart this month, with a number of European transfer windows still open.

But after handing Lucas a new deal, tying the two centre-backs down should be the next order of business for chairman Daniel Levy.
