Tottenham Sign Lucas Moura From PSG In Deal Worth Around £25m

Of course, Lucas Moura is a name that for our fans is an exciting name.

Moura signed for PSG in January 2013 for £31.8m from Sao Paulo and has made over 150 appearances for the club, winning four Ligue 1 titles and three Coupe de France trophies. There were loads of rumours about Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane but there's no proof that substantive talks occurred about any prominent Spurs star.

Moura's arrival ensures Pochettino as a further option to beat an opponent that would come as a huge asset against sides that sit back. That is the fair competition.

It is unlikely, then, that Spurs will see the best of this potentially devastating offensive talent before the end of the season - his nearly complete exile in Paris has seen to that. "It's fair, he's better". Tottenham's attacking performance against Manchester United showed that they don't need the Brazilian to come straight into the team and he will be given time to bed in. Lucas Moura must compete with Lamela, with Sonny, with Eriksen'.

Mauricio Pochettino will hope to build momentum when Tottenham travel to face Liverpool at Anfield this Sunday.


Moura will undergo a series of fitness tests, starting on Saturday, and will have to prove his sharpness.

Spurs were ripped apart at Anfield a year ago by Liverpool's pace in attack but there have been signs this season, away to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, that Tottenham can show a more resilient side.

This season has been a frustrating one as he has rarely featured for PSG after the French club signed a number of high-profile players including worldwide team-mate Neymar.

Hell, the transfer reveal video was already a smashing success for Spurs.

An outstanding dribbler, the Brazilian uses pace and flair to get past opponents easily, and he's able to forge opportunities for his team-mates or take them himself. "Definitely up there. I'd say top five probably". It's important to see the difference in between being fit to start training with the group and starting to be fit for the games.
