Fabrizio Romano claims ‘many clubs are interested’ in signing Spurs winger

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that there is a lot of interest in Tottenham winger Lucas Moura at the moment.

Moura has shown flashes of real quality since arriving at Tottenham in 2018, most notably with his brilliant hat-trick in the 2019 Champions League semi-final against Ajax.

However, the Brazilian has not been able to perform consistently, which is perhaps why he has not yet managed to seal a regular starting birth for the side under Mourinho.

The former Paris Saint-Germain man did play regularly after Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the helm last season but he has once again been reduced to a bit-part role this campaign after Tottenham’s recent acquisitions.

With Harry Kane and Son Heung-min seemingly guaranteed to start most games, the winger is competing for one spot in the side with the likes of Steven Bergwijn, Erik Lamela and Gareth Bale.

EuroSport claimed at the start of the month that Spurs were open to selling Moura if they receive a suitable offer. However, Romano insisted that the winger is likely to stay put, at least until the summer.

When asked whether Moura could leave, he said on the Last Word On Spurs podcast: “I think in January it’s difficult. Next summer probably anything can change.

“Also because many clubs are interested in him. He is a good player and also for many top clubs, but at the moment there is nothing.”

It looks unlikely at this point that the club would extend Bale’s stay by another year. Even if the Welshman returns to Madrid at the end of the season, I would still expect to Spurs to potentially move on one of Lucas and Lamela. I suspect the Brazilian will be the most likely to depart as he is the most expendable and someone who could potentially fetch a decent fee in the market.
