Al Nassr FC are in the frame for Spurs’ Lucas Moura, according to Al Jazeera’s sources. This may come as quite a shock to some fans, given the way the diminutive Brazilian cemented himself into so many hearts with his insane come-back goals against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final.
The rather less sympathetic reality is that Moura has really struggled to pick up meaningful game-time. Indeed, even after his great work against Ajax, he was dropped for the final.
Last season, Lucas made 30 Premier League appearances for Spurs, but 23 were from the bench. One area Tottenham has an over-abundance of options is in the midfield, and it might the case that with his 29th birthday looming in August, it might be time to organize a profitable swansong in the sun.
I like Moura, however, this squad desperately needs a thorough spring-clean and this would be a good step forward towards that aim.
