Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has said that Lucas Moura is yet to prove that he is good enough to be a regular for Spurs.
The Brazilian had a slow start after moving from PSG in the January of 2018 but began to shine when he got his opportunities towards the end of last season.
There was hope, especially after his heroics at Ajax, that this was going to be the season that the Brazilian kicked on.
However, he didn’t get much of a look-in under Mauricio Pochettino and he failed to shine in the few opportunities that did come his way.
While he has been involved regularly under Jose Mourinho, his performances have still been inconsistent and some Spurs fans haven’t been too happy with his contributions off late.
In Kane’s absence, the Brazilian has been asked to do a job up front by Mourinho and he has certainly worked his socks off for the side.
However, Mills has questioned if the 27-year-old has the desired quality.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Moura’s been there a while now.
“Has he been good enough on a consistent level on that right-hand side? Is he good enough full stop? I don’t know, the jury is still out on that one.
“I know he’s had some fantastic performances, but they’ve been quite few and far between.”

The frustration with Moura is that he often makes the wrong choices after getting into good positions. While he might not be of the desired quality to start every week, I feel he is still a great option to bring off the bench. He also has a great attitude and is one of those players you want in your squad.
