Lack of transfer activity must buoy relative Tottenham newbie Lucas Moura

The Brazilian joined from PSG in the winter.

It appears Tottenham Hotspur will not be signing Malcom this summer. Instead, it looks as though the Brazilian is more likely to join Everton. Tottenham have in fact been extremely quiet in the transfer market. At the moment, there is more talk of who might leave rather than who might arrive.

But as Spurs continue to play it cautiously in the transfer market one man should be buoyed by that tactic.

Lucas Moura joined Tottenham in January for £23 million. He arrived at the end of the winter window and had Spurs fans excited about his future with the club. His first six months were always going to be difficult. He had barely played for PSG in the lead up to his move and joining a new team halfway through a season is always a tall order.

But he still showed glimpses of what he is capable of in the future. However, many appear to have forgotten that, essentially, Moura will be like a new signing for Tottenham next season.

The Brazilian talent will now surely be excited ahead of the new campaign, especially if Tottenham do not bring in any more wide options in attack.

“It is not easy for a player who doesn’t play for seven months and comes to a new team and everything is new.

“I am so happy, the player is so happy, and his team-mates are so happy with him. He is so humble and works hard every day to improve.”

– Mauricio Pochettino speaking about Lucas Moura in February



Heung-min Son is away on international duty at the start of the season and Moura will have had a full summer of preparation and training behind him to have got into the best shape possible. He could start the campaign in the Tottenham XI.


Moura should be left pleased and confident by any backing Tottenham give him and fans might see the absolute best of the £23m star next season.

    Terribly excited to see Moura play this season. He has already displayed some excellent skills in his few appearances last year. He was acquired for the future. The future begins in August. The front end on this team is very solid. I expect Moura to deliver exceptional performance. I expect Lamela to come in fully back and recovered – Add Kane, Son, Dele, Ericksen, Trippier and we have a formidable strike force. Barring injury, we have skill and depth. Martial or Rashford would be great acquisitions but not desperate. Hoping for Wanyama and Winks to be fully fit as well and we don’t have many holes to plug. Alderweireld, Dembele and Rose are the question marks and while they can all contribute if they stay; if they move on, we seem to have links to good developable replacements. The biggest concerns are – resolving those three players, the early season wear & tear resulting from world Cup over-indulgence and the gamble to retain Son safely. Davies, Sanchez, Vertongen and Lloris are star material at the back end (stronger if Toby stays) and we have competent journeymen and prospects to back up this first team. It’s exciting as it stands and I’m confident we will make a couple of significant acquisitions. COYS

    Haven’t forgotten about Moura but he hasn’t exactly solidified his position in the few games he has had. Undoubtedly talented and ambitious individual, its just a question of whether he is the right fit for Tottenham as a team.
