Report: £80k-a-week Tottenham player now in talks to leave the club, he’s keen to move on
Tottenham Hotspur could see plenty of incomings and outgoings during next month’s transfer window.
Antonio Conte has made it clear that he wants to continuing improving his squad in the new year.
Spurs want to bring in competition for Dejan Kulusevski, while a right-back is also on the agenda.
A number of players could also leave the club, with some going on loan and others potentially leaving permanently.
Winger Bryan Gil may finally get his loan move away from north London after being denied the chance to leave in the summer.
Despite starting against Brentford, Japhet Tanganga could also be on his way out of the club.
Another player who could leave Tottenham soon is winger Lucas Moura.
The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs, and has been plagued by injuries this season.
And now, LANCE believe Moura is back in talks with his first club Sao Paulo about a potential move back to Brazil.
Moura could leave Tottenham, he’s keen to go
The report suggests that ‘Moura would have always made it clear that he is interested in returning to São Paulo’.
The £80,000-a-week winger has made eight appearances in the league this season, but they’ve all come off the bench.
Conte is keen to bring in another attacker, after making it clear with his selection policy that he doesn’t fully trust Moura or Gil.
LANCE have said that ‘the interest is mutual’ between Moura and Sao Paulo about a reunion.
Moura is one of Tottenham’s highest earners, and if he does leave, it could open up funds to bring in a replacement.
Journalist Ben Jacobs has recently reported that Moura isn’t happy at the club and could leave next month.
His injury record has certainly played a part, with the Brazilian only training when he feels like it right now.
Moura is a popular player among Tottenham fans, and has been responsible for some incredible moments.
His hat-trick against Ajax to help reach the Champions League final will never be forgotten.
However, it might be time for Moura to leave Tottenham and start playing regular football again elsewhere.
