Tottenham: Lucas Moura exit ‘could still happen’ out of window

Tottenham: Lucas Moura exit 'could still happen' out of window - Premier League News

Tottenham winger Lucas Moura’s possible exit ‘could still happen’ out-of-window, says ‘expert‘ John Wenham.

The Lowdown: Lucas linked with departure…

The Brazilian, who has entered the final few months of his Spurs contract, was linked with a departure in the last transfer window as clubs displayed an interest in January.

Reports claim Lucas was even offered to Premier League strugglers Everton as Tottenham potentially aimed to make a small profit on the player before his deal expires.

The 30-year-old has been severely limited for playing time under Antonio Conte this season, playing just 93 minutes in total, with Wenham claiming Spurs can still facilitate his exit.

The Latest: Lucas exit ‘could still happen’…

Speaking to Football Insider, the expert suggests that Tottenham could still sell Lucas as other transfer windows remain open outside of the UK’s.

He explained:

“The thing to consider is that other transfer windows are still open.

“In the past, we have actually moved players on after our own window has shut. That could still happen soon.

“Alternatively, he is a good bench option. Is he better than Bryan Gil? Yes, he is. Suddenly now we could be starting games with Rciharlison, Danjuma and Lucas as bench options.”

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

The Verdict: Do it?

The South American winger has been praised for his contribution by Conte before, especially last season when Lucas even managed better stats than any Spurs player in one regard. According to WhoScored, no Tottenham man averaged more successful take-ons per 90 than the former Paris-Saint Germain star over 2021/2022.

He often put in good displays when given a chance and we believe Lucas could still have a role to play under Conte before the conclusion of this season.

Called a ‘team player’ by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, that is certainly what Spurs need right now as they chase a second-consecutive top four finish.

The attacker has already etched himself into Spurs history with a stunning Champions League semi-final hat-trick in 2019, but perhaps it could be time for one last hurrah before his departure on a Bosman.
