Man United blow: Tottenham rival Red Devils for PSG star



Tottenham Hotspur have made an enquiry to Paris Saint-Germain over the possibility of signing Lucas Moura on loan, according to Le10 Sport.
Manchester United appeared hot favourites to land the Brazilian, however, they have now got competition in the form of Spurs.
Mauricio Pochettino appears to be searching for a wide-forward, having already targeted Lucas’ fellow countryman Malcom.
Lucas interest
Tottenham have made an enquiry to bring the PSG attacker in on loan for the rest of the season.
Lucas has struggled for game time at Parc des Princes this season, making just six appearances for the French league leaders in all competitions.
The Brazilian is understood to be disappointed with his situation in France and could seek game time elsewhere, especially with the World Cup on the horizon.
Manchester United have been in hot pursuit of the player which will mean a deal for the player could prove hard to come by.
However, the player has already seen former teammate Serge Aurier make the same switch, meaning the Ivorian full-back could prove pivotal in Spurs’ pursuit. Wide-forward
Tottenham Hotspur are targeting a wide-forward, according to the Daily Mirror.
This, along with interest in Malcom, could suggest that Spurs are in fact looking at signing Lucas this month.
Squad issue
An issue with signing another foreign player would mean that Tottenham will have to leave another non-homegrown player out of their squad.
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, who has just departed for Burnley, was expected to be replaced in the club’s Champions League squad by Erik Lamela.
With the addition of Lamela, Tottenham will have filled their non-homegrown quota, meaning another star would have to be sacrificed.
Spurs fans keen
