Tottenham speed machine Lucas Moura endured a rocky first six months following his arrival in January and was unable to cement his spot in the starting XI.
The 25-year-old attacker was a fringe figure in the second half of the campaign and managed just 11 appearances in all competitions, completing 90 minutes in none of them.
However, the Brazilian right-winger certainly showed glimpses of quality to spark encouragement and a window of opportunity may open for him next season.
It is understood that the wide man has the prospect of two-year mandatory military service surrounding him, but would be exempt if he wins a gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games with South Korea.
Son would be likely to miss the start of the new campaign if he did participate in the Asian Games and as it stands it is unclear if he will or not.
Moura certainly has the ability to try make the most of Son’s absence if it does come about, as he is one of the main obstacles between him and a spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI.
The ex-Paris Saint-Germain speedster has shown what a direct attacking threat he can be and may just need a run of regular games in a Spurs shirt to come to life.
