Fabrizio Romano has said that Lucas Moura is not likely to leave Tottenham this transfer window unless a big offer arrives for the winger in the next few days.

The only question regarding Moura’s future is whether he leaves this window or as a free agent in the summer after Tottenham chose not to take up the option to extend the Brazilian’s current deal, which runs out at the end of the season (Telegraph).

Over the last week, it has emerged that the 30-year-old is of interest to the likes of Everton (Andre Hernan – YouTube) and AS Roma (TMW).

Moura completed his long-awaited return from his injury yesterday as he featured for Tottenham’s Under-21s in their 2-1 win over Arsenal, with the former Paris Saint-Germain star getting on the scoresheet in the first half.

Alasdair Gold took to social media yesterday to reveal that the winger is open to leaving Spurs this month and suggested that his appearance for the Under-21s might have been to convince interested clubs of his fitness.

However, Romano said on the Last World on Spurs YouTube Channel that, as things stand, Moura looks set to stay at Tottenham until the end of the season.

The journalist stated that the situation will only change if the Lilywhites receive a considerable offer for the attacker before the window closes.

It did seem a bit strange that Lucas was rushed back to start for the Under-21s yesterday and I am inclined to believe Gold’s assertion that it was done with the intention of proving his fitness to potential suitors. 

I would not be surprised if interested parties (potentially representatives from Everton or Roma) were present yesterday at Hotspur Way to watch him in action.

I also wonder if the club could be in the market for another attacking option over the next few days, potentially Nicolo Zaniolo, if both Moura and Bryan Gil are offloaded.
