It seems as though Tottenham would beat Arsenal and Manchester United to the signature of PSG’s Lucas Moura.
The Brazilian winger has been the subject of transfer enquiries from the Premier League trio this month. But Tottenham has succeeded in persuading him to visit them.
PSG gave their players Thursday as a day off following their win over Guingamp in the French League in midweek and Moura has taken that extra time to visit Spurs.
Moura is a victim of PSG’s new financial power. He joined them from Sao Paolo in 2012 as the first signing of the club’s new era. However, this season he has fallen down the pecking order following the signing of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Julian Draxler. He has played less than 90 minutes of football this season and has admitted that this would be his last season at the Parc des Princes.
Tottenham are looking to sign him on loan for the next six months, however, PSG want a permanent deal as they look to make up numbers and avoid breaking the Financial Fair Play Rule. They have reduced their asking price to £22 million, but Tottenham wants it reduced further.
Moura is meeting with Daniel Levy today and he hopes that there would be an agreement between the two clubs before the end of the winter transfer window.
