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.”
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.
