With just over 24 hours to go before one of the biggest Premier League fixtures of the season, Tottenham fans will be delighted to hear that Lucas Moura is in contention to feature against Arsenal, in what will be his debut for the club.
Lucas, who is valued at £25.2million by Transfermarkt, was the only new arrival at Spurs in January and fans have been eager to see the Brazilian in action.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of Saturday’s North London Derby, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino stated;
“I think Lucas will be ready to be in contention for Saturday. He’s doing well, training so hard, he’s starting to feel his legs. And yes we need to assess him tomorrow after the last training session but I hope’s he’s doing well and we can put him in contention.”
After hearing the news that their new signing could play against Arsenal, Spurs fans took to Twitter and were understandably delighted…
Yessss Moura will play the Nld
