Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura is reportedly of interest to Real Betis this summer.

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur could offload Lucas Moura this summer, but that would surely be unthinkable.

Tottenham have not given up on signing Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, and to finance that move Mauricio Pochettino’s side are said to be considering letting go of Moura.

 

Real Betis are believed to be interested in the rapid winger, and have contacted Tottenham over his availability.

The Brazilian only arrived at Spurs in a £23 million transfer in January (BBC Sport), and has been held back so far.

However, Moura has generally made a positive impression at Tottenham.

Whenever the former PSG man has been given a chance he has looked spritely, and it seems like he could have a crucial role to play in the upcoming campaign.

Moura has been one of Tottenham’s most impressive performers over pre-season.

And even if Zaha was to arrive at Spurs this summer, the sale of Moura has surely not even crossed the mind of Pochettino.
