Real Betis vice-chairman Lorenzo Serra Ferrer says the Seville club would like to sign Tottenham’s Lucas Moura before the Spanish transfer window shuts.
The Brazilian only joined Tottenham from PSG in January and after limited game time last season, he has shown glimpses during pre=season why Mauricio Pochettino was keen to sign the 26-year-old.
The La Liga side are keen to strengthen their squad before the window closes on August 31st and have identified both Moura and Joao Mario as a potential signing.
Moura started Tottenham’s 2-1 Premier League opening day win at Newcastle United and with Heung-min Son on international duty with South Korea, he is likely to start against Fulham at Wembley on Saturday.
It would be madness to sell Moura, he offers us pace and trickery going forward, something which we can’t rely on from Erik Lamela due to his proneness to injury.
Serra Ferrer told el Desmarque: “They [Lucas Moura and Joao Mario] are two great footballers and if we have possibilities we would like to have them. But we have to be realistic and know what we can do.
“We try to distribute the economic potential well in order to try and reinforce and improve the workforce. We have made six additions, replacing players that last year performed very well, with a brilliant goal, and we think we have improved.
“It will be difficult to match what we did last year.”
