Tottenham Hotspur sign Brazilian winger Lucas Moura from PSG

Tottenham Lucas Moura Paris St-Germain

Mauricio Pochettino has warned new signing Lucas Moura he will have to earn his place in the Tottenham team. We signed a player who has not competed for six or seven months.

To be fair to Daniel Levy, despite leaving it late once again, getting a Brazil global from PSG in the January transfer window for £25million in today's market is it a bit of a coup. But it's different to signing Neymar, Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pochettino later suggested that the trip to Liverpool will still come too early for Moura as he is still working with the club's sports science department to build his match fitness.

This one probably could have been announced by now but it's likely Tottenham are holding back some late deadline day drama, and taking their time confirming the deal is actually over the line. The previous season he scored a lot of goals.

"I am so happy to be here", Moura said via a short video on Tottenham's snapchat account.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar believes it is unfair that one one of his teammates is being forced out of the Ligue 1 giants.

"We can take confidence from today and this is the performance we need to play against the big teams home and away".




The Brazil worldwide is only set to join training on Saturday and the Spurs boss insists the new man will be given no special treatment.

Asked about Lucas' looming exit from the French capital, countryman Neymar told reporters: "I'm sad, because he's a good friend, he's a quality player who was rarely used".

Tottenham fans could get their first glimpse of him at Anfield on Sunday as they travel to face Liverpool, whilst his first home game could be against rivals Arsenal next week.

"But we are a team that remember, some people complained or criticised that Tottenham don't have Plan B".

"Of course this situation it's not a big deal and of course he understands".

Moura excelled even more in the 2015/16 season and went on to score nine goals in the league and register four assists while also breaking his duck in Europe.
