Tottenham sign Lucas Moura from PSG for £25m

Tottenham confirm £25 million Lucas Moura signing

Brazilian forward Lucas Moura moved from Paris Saint-Germain to Tottenham Hotspur, for a reported £25 million transfer fee.

Mauricio Pochettino has gone about building an excellent first team at Spurs since taking the job, no one could argue with that, but there's certainly been times when pace has been a problem for the side now playing at Wembley. It's also a big club. The expectation is that he can help us in the next three months but we cannot put too much pressure on him. "But if he doesn't score form the beginning, it's not a mistake".

"I think it is very helpful to have him".

Moura is unlikely to make his debut against Liverpool on Sunday given he was still saying his goodbyes in Paris on Friday.

"He's still doing things - he was yesterday doing some tests with our sports science medical staff, today he's in Paris doing private things". I just want to play my own football, that's how it is, I want to make things happen.

"Of course. I can play in the Champions League it's an objective for me".




'But we are a team that remember, some people complained or criticised that Tottenham don't have Plan B. "Maybe he needs to work alone a little bit to reach the team's level".

He netted in Champions League victories over Malmo and Shakhtar Donetsk and also scored in a Coupe de France success over Saint-Etienne. "We don't have space for everyone", the Tottenham boss added.

One man who isn't happy with the transfer, however, is Lucas's compatriot Neymar.

His comments show the ambition of the player and that is good to hear from a new signing. Only Florian Thauvin (384) has completed more dribbles than Moura (372) since the start of the 2012/13 Ligue 1 season and he'll bring the ability to stretch defences that look to sit deep and frustrate Spurs.

But the Spurs manager replied: "I think the performance was fantastic and we played so well and the team deserves a lot of credit".

The 25-year-old Brazilian winger has signed a deal with Tottenham until 2023, having grown frustrated with the lack of playing time on offer at PSG.
