The Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern aren’t overly used to their side being busy in the January market and, to be fair, were made to wait this year. Still, though a lot of January dragged on the incoming front for our local Lilywhites, it proved to be worth it.
Indeed, with Mauricio Pochettino splashing the cash to bring Brazil star Lucas Moura to the Big Smoke in a deal reported to be worth around £23m, Spurs supporters everywhere were absolutely delighted. Many hope the former Paris Saint-Germain star can be the man to add some pace and trickery to their attack as Tottenham aim to finish in the top four, as well as compete in this season’s Champions League.
So, as you’ve probably guessed by now, everyone is pretty excited now he’s here, especially with the North London derby just around the corner. Ahead of Saturday lunchtime’s clash with bitter rivals Arsenal, the club posted a video of their new man training on Twitter, exciting fans everywhere.

Can’t wait to see this guy play. What a signing by Levy, I don’t know how he got it done.
