Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to join the race to sign Brazil international forward Lucas Moura, according to L’Equipe.

The Premier League side, who face Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday, have been linked with the out of favour Paris Saint-Germain winger before the close of the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old, who has 36 international caps for his country, has scored one goal and provided one assist in just six appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 giants so far this season.

Moura, who joined PSG back in August 2012 following his reported £38m switch from Sao Paulo, has scored 46 goals in 229 games overall for Unai Emery’s side, winning four league titles, among other honours, in the French capital.

However, having failed to start a single league game so far this 2017-18 campaign, the Samba star has already been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United, though it is now understood Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is also interested in luring the right winger to Wembley Stadium this month.

Moura is valued at £34.2m, by transfermarkt.
