Tottenham Hotspur have made an enquiry for Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura, expressing their desire to sign him on loan.

Lucas Moura has struggled for game time this season and is keen to leave the club in January.

Le 10 Sport report Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has not intention of buying Lucas this January, but has told PSG that if they are considering a loan move, then Spurs may formalise an offer.

Le Parisien claimed this week that PSG want 40 million Euros (£35.2m) for the winger, with Manchester United reportedly interested and his representatives also reaching out to gauge Liverpool's interest.

Lucas was Brazil's most in demand player in 2012 and PSG beat competition from Manchester United to sign him.

Still only 25, Lucas is an exciting winger who simply needs a fresh start after being squeezed out of PSG's team.

This season he has made only five appearances in Ligue 1, all as a substitute, scoring once and providing one assist.

Last season was his most prolific, scoring 12 goals, but PSG's set up has changed substantially due to the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

These expensive additions mean PSG are likely to push for a sale to balance the books, but if they get no bidders near their market value, then sending him on loan could become viable.
