Report: Turkish club ready to throw their hat in the ring for Spurs player this summer

Turkish side Fenerbahce look set to make a move to sign Lucas Moura when his contract with Tottenham Hotspur expires at the end of this season.

The Brazilian winger will call time on a five-year spell at Tottenham this summer. Moura has racked up 218 appearances for Spurs now, with 38 goals and 27 assists during his time in North London (Transfermarkt).

Moura has found his opportunities limited more and more at Spurs, and injuries have not helped his game time this season.

The 30-year-old has just 16 appearances for the Tottenham first team this term (Transfermarkt) and has failed to find the back of the net all season.

With his current contract set to expire at the end of this campaign, Spurs have made the decision not to renew Moura’s deal and will let him leave for free in the summer.

There are plenty of clubs waiting to snap up the experienced attacker, too. According to Goal, clubs in the Premier League, Serie A, Major League Soccer, and Qatar have shown an interest in Moura.

Now, the latest from Fanatik suggests it could be Turkey that Moura ends up, with Fenerbache keen to get a deal done.

The outlet claims Moura’s Spurs exit “is now certain,” and it is thought Fenerbache are “preparing” their offer for the Brazilian.

In fact, the Turkish giants are so eager to sign Moura that they are reportedly “ready to mobilise all their resources” to make the move happen, and they want to make it happen “quick”.

It is suggested Fenerbahce will offer Moura €3 million per season, with a two-year contract, plus the option of an extra year.

Fenerbahce are now believed to be the “most eager club” when it comes to the race for Moura’s signature.

Spurs Web Opinion

I think the Turkish league would be a good fit for Moura. He still has the ability to do a job in one of Europe’s slightly less competitive leagues, and it sounds like a big offer will be on the table, too.
