This comes after the Brazilian gave Conte and Spurs a nice boost last week when he returned to action for an U21 match against Arsenal, even getting on the scoresheet.

Moura has only appeared eight times in the Premier League this season, amounting to 90 minutes. He was out injured for 42 days at the start of the campaign, followed by a further 30 days when his problem returned (TransferMarkt).

In the final week of the January transfer window, The Sun reported that Southampton, Crystal Palace and Everton were all interested in signing the winger on a free in the summer.

It has already been confirmed that this will be Moura’s final season in North London after Tottenham club passed up on the option to extend his contract (The Telegraph).

Spurs Web Opinion:

Tottenham have struggled to change games from the bench in recent months. Having perhaps the likes of Moura, Richarlison, and Danjuma on the bench and Kane, Kulusevski and Son on the pitch makes a huge difference.
