Brazilian outlet UOL have revealed that a number of clubs across Europe have already made inquiries to Lucas Moura’s representatives regarding a summer transfer.
Moura will be a free agent in June after Tottenham chose not to activate the option to extend the winger’s contract (Telegraph), which means that the player is allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside the Premier League.
Journalist Jorge Nicola reported on his website a couple of days ago that the 30-year-old knows he is unlikely to find a ‘top’ club and could instead sign for teams such as Sevilla, Porto or Lazio.
UOL have now explained that Moura’s representatives are currently in London and have already fielded queries from clubs in England, Italy and France.
They are expected to move forward with ‘official contacts’ over the coming days and weeks, with the former Paris Saint-Germain wanting a contract for at least three more seasons.
The report adds that Moura’s boyhood team, Sao Paulo, are also following the situation closely but the Brazilian club are aware that the player is likely to remain in Europe.

I would not be surprised if a few mid-table Premier League clubs were also eyeing a move for Moura in the summer but my suspicion is that he is likely to end up in France or Italy.
The race for the 30-year-old will understandably be heating up as it is not often that a player of his experience and quality is available on a free transfer.
