Lucas Moura has admitted that he is very likely to stay at Tottenham Hotspur next season after holding conversations with the club about his future.
Moura was a regular in Tottenham’s starting eleven during Antonio Conte’s first couple of months in charge, with the Italian even describing the winger as one of the best players at the club (Alasdair Gold).
However, the 29-year-old was relegated to a bit-part role following the arrival of Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus in January as the Swede hit the ground running in North London.
Moura could fall further down the pecking order at Spurs next season, with Conte allegedly keen on signing another forward capable of playing across the front three (The Telegraph).
The Evening Standard claimed last month that the former Paris Saint-Germain man is one of the players Spurs are willing to listen to offers for his summer but the report revealed that the winger is happy at the club.
Moura has now stated that he has had conversations with the club regarding his future and is motivated to help the club do well on their return to the Champions League.
“Hardly anything will happen in this window. I will hardly leave Tottenham. Of course, we never know what will happen. Even more so with the Champions League spot, so I feel very motivated for next season, to continue.”

We need a large squad next season to be able to compete on multiple fronts. Moura is just the kind of squad player that Conte will need as the Brazilian is a team man who will not sulk if he does not get too many opportunities. His ability to beat players one vs one also makes him a very useful impact substitute to bring on against tired legs.
