According to Alasdair Gold, Tottenham could sell Lucas Moura this summer as they look to rebuild the squad.
The Lowdown: Big summer ahead
This transfer window promises to be a big one for Spurs. Harry Kane has revealed he wants to leave the club (Sky Sports), while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Football Insider), Davinson Sanchez and Dele Alli have all been linked with the exit door.
It appears an unexpected name could also be in line to depart, too.
The Latest: Gold suggests Moura could go
Writing for football.london, Gold has indicated Spurs could unexpectedly move to let the Brazil international leave north London.
They turned down big bids for him last summer, so it is somewhat surprising they are now allegedly eager to sell as they look to bring in a key starter in his place.
The Verdict: Right time
Lucas has had a solid career to date – he has managed 100 goals, with 32 of them coming at Tottenham (Transfermarkt), and he has played an important role for his current side. During the 2018/19 Champions League, for example, his hat-trick against Ajax in the semi-final second leg took Tottenham to the final in Madrid.
Should Tottenham sell Moura?
However, while he continues to receive regular playing time, he has been unable to contribute enough in terms of goals and assists – he managed just seven combined in the league this season. Tottenham may have already got the best out of him and could be looking to move him on at the perfect time.
In other news, David Ornstein has made this Harry Kane claim.
