According to a report in Mundo Deportivo (07/12/22 as relayed by Fichajes.net), Sevilla have expressed an interest in snapping up Lucas Moura in January.

As expected, Moura was a bit-part player in the first part of the 2022-23 season and the winger’s situation is not likely to change unless there is an injury crisis up front for Antonio Conte’s men, with the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski ahead of the Brazilian in the pecking order.

Bolavip reported a few days ago that the 30-year-old could be on his way out of Spurs as early as January, with Flamengo allegedly showing interest in signing him.

However, this was dismissed by Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, who subsequently said on his YouTube channel (as relayed by Sport Witness) that Flamengo have made no contact with Moura’s representatives or Spurs.

Another potential destination has now been mooted for the former Paris Saint-Germain man, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that Sevilla have identified him as a target.

The report explains that the club’s manager Jorge Sampaoli has asked for attacking reinforcements in January and that the Tottenham man has been on their radar for a long time.

It is alleged that Spurs would be willing to sell Moura for a fee of around €12m (£10.3m) and that the La Liga club have identified Borussia Dortmund’s Donyell Malen, Marseille’s Gerson, Elche’s Lucas Boye as alternatives to the Brazilian.

Even if Tottenham were to sign another attacker in January (which I fully expect to happen), I think Conte will want to keep Moura around as a squad player until the end of the season. 

The Italian will be aware that a couple of injuries to the forward line will put him in a very difficult spot if the club decide to let the 30-year-old leave, particularly given that Gil is likely to be loaned out.
