Tottenham face surprise competition from La Liga club for €40m wantaway Brazilian – reports

Published

on

Paris Saint-Germain’s out-of-favour winger Lucas Moura is desperate to leave the club, with Premier League clubs Tottenham and Arsenal thought to be interested. Surprisingly, Real Betis have reportedly submitted a club-record offer for Lucas, who has been told by PSG boss Unai Emery that he has no future at the club and should find pastures new this month.

Emery said: “I have talked to him and with all due respect to him, I think he has no options here and he has to look for another club because he is a great player.”

The PSG boss’ comments have further heightened the speculation surrounding the Brazilian and it is no secret that the player considers moving away from the French capital. Lucas’ desire to leave Paris in order to receive regular game-time has alerted Tottenham and Arsenal, while Manchester United earlier expressed an interest in the player.

In a surprise twist of events, Betis have emerged out of nowhere and are interested in bringing the PSG outcast, report Football ESPANA.

The Brazil international’s time is over at Parc des Princes while Betis are said to be keen on bolstering their attacking options this month.

The report adds that the Andalucian club have made submitted a club record €30m bid for the 25-year-old. The €30m offer includes an initial €18m, plus a further €12m in variables, but the Spanish club’s proposal is likely to be rejected by the Ligue 1 leaders, who are hoping to receive a far better fee as they rate the winger at €40m.

Lucas has only made 6 appearances for the club this season in all competitions and the French club are on the lookout to offload Lucas to balance their books and meet the Financial Fair Play regulations. Speaking of his lack of game time so far this campaign, the 25-year-old said that he is not happy with his situation at PSG after spending five years with the club. The Brazil international told L’Equipe he was gutted at being frozen out by the French giants.

“It’s a brutal blow. I’m gutted that I’m no longer playing, to no longer be able to express myself as I was doing before. I’m not happy. I thought I’d built something solid with this club, but that’s clearly not the case.”

Are Spurs paying any heed to Lucas’s situation at PSG? Reports suggest that we are in for the winger but in my understanding, our board seem set to lose out on signing a talented player.
