It’s been a difficult season for the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern, and they’re hoping that a few new faces will help freshen things up at Wembley. Though far from a poor season, the Lilywhites haven’t been at their consistent, deadly best so far – and that has been a problem for Mauricio Pochettino.
This month, then, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a few players come in to improve things, and according to Le 10 Sport, one player that Spurs are keen on bringing in is Lucas Moura.
Le 10 Sport note that Tottenham have made contact with PSG regarding a potential move for the Brazilian, with the club eager to learn more about his situation. However, they will apparently only make a move on the condition that it is a loan deal – and unfortunately for them, PSG are not said to be open to that prospect at present.
Man Utd have previously been linked with a move for Moura, also by Le 10 Sport.
On the surface, that could leave Tottenham out in the cold with regards to this deal, but with over two weeks to go until the window slams shut, anything could happen.
Moura certainly looks on the verge of an exit, but it’s looking far more likely to be a permanent move at present. That could change, though, as stranger things have happened in football in recent years.
At present, PSG don’t seem interested in a loan, but that shouldn’t turn Tottenham completely off the prospect. After all, at 25-years-old, Moura is a player that is yet to reach his peak, and so perhaps Spurs could convince them that Pochettino could be the man to turn his career around.
A permanent transfer for Tottenham would be a risk, given his recent lack of game time.
In truth, a few things are going to have to change if this deal is to happen, and so Tottenham fans shouldn’t hold their breath – though he would be a good addition.
