According to a recent report from the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino wants a new winger as his third summer signing, and there is one exciting young wide man who could become a huge star at White Hart Lane.

Lucas Moura has spent the last four years at Paris Saint-Germain, in which time he has scored 26 goals and provided 36 assists in 170 appearances.

Last season saw his best return to date, with 13 goals while rotating between the left and the right wing, and his pace, trickery and innate talent could be exactly what Tottenham need to reach the next level.

At 23, the Brazil international also fits the mould of a Daniel Levy signing – a player who can make an instant impact but who is only going to get better in the next few years and whose value could ultimately increase considerably.

The winger has recently been linked with a move to Liverpool by Sky Sports. However Tottenham would be wise to get in there first, able as they are to offer Champions League football next season and possessing a vibrant young squad that will only benefit from the stardust Lucas possesses.

He would not come cheap, and he may not come at all, but if he is contemplating a move to England this summer Tottenham could off him the perfect stage on which to impress.
