With Time Running Out, Why Tottenham Should Quickly Complete £23million Deal For Lucas Moura

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly confident of striking a deal with Paris Saint-Germain for attacker Lucas Moura this month. The Evening Standard suggests that the PSG forward held talks with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy, who are both keen to sign the out-of-favour Brazilian before the end of the transfer window.

Lucas has been deemed surplus to requirements at Parc des Princes following the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at the start of the season. The duo’s entry has seen the winger spend most of the time out of the team or on the bench.

The Brazil international has made just 6 appearances in all competitions this term and PSG boss Unai Emery has clearly told that the player has no future at the club and that he needs to find a new club as quickly as possible. So with Emery’s words being crystal clear, Lucas is desperate to move out of the French capital and looks set for a move to Spurs. But will his signing be a good buy for Pochettino and the club?

A big yes! Lucas is nippy, agile, creative and is a proven goal-scorer. His all-round game at Sao Paulo attracted a number of big clubs but eventually, PSG showed more interest and snapped him up in 2013. Tottenham have been crying out for a game-changing winger and Lucas is exactly what we need. He is a player with experience as he has played 228 games for PSG.

At just 25, Lucas is still not a finished product and is yet to reach his peak. His ability to stretch defences with frightening pace and agility is something Pochettino must take a note of.

The Brazilian is unpredictable, versatile and has a penchant for scoring spectacular goals. He primarily plays on the right-wing and that is an area which needs a new face.

Apart from just crossing or bringing the strikers into play, Lucas is a skilled winger with exceptionally quick feet. His dribbling is fantastic and keeps the ability to outpace any defender on any given day. His biggest assets are his sudden burst of pace and sprightliness.

Lucas has developed season after season at PSG, where he has improved and matured markedly. With good ball control, and now, a few years older and wiser since joining PSG, he has the composure and strength to hold off the recovering defenders and finish off a move. However, the Brazilian has space to still improve his end product and to do that, he needs regular game time.

At Spurs, Lucas would exactly get what he wants. He can occupy the No. 10 position just behind the striker and advance forward or play on either flank and give the defenders a run for their money. In every case, the 30-time capped Brazil international can offer a new dimension to Tottenham’s attack and can form a deadly attack with the likes of Alli, Heung-min Son, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane.

The former Sao Paulo man is criminally underrated and needs regular time on the field to unlock his true potential. Playing for Spurs would certainly do that and Pochettino must not waste any further time to seal the deal. For someone of 25 years of age, Lucas has tons of experience, has tasted enormous success at club level and would bring a new thrust at North London.

In today’s highly-inflated transfer market, Lucas’ price-tag of £23million is a snip and our club should strongly consider paying that money to get the gifted attacker.
