Tottenham make a breakthrough in their bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas Moura
Tottenham appear to have made a breakthrough in their efforts to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas Moura, amid claims that the French club have accepted a £25m offer for their out-of-favour winger.
Moura was a star of the PSG side last season, but he has slipped out of first team contention following the arrival of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe and has been strongly linked with a move to England throughout this month's transfer window.
Manchester United and Arsenal were reported to be considering moves to sign Moura, but it appears that Tottenham are ready to close a deal for a player who will be eligible to play in the latter stages of the Champions League.
Moura was reported to have visited Tottenham training ground last week as he weighed up a move and he will now complete a medical and finalise personal terms before sealing his move to north London.
He will arrive in England with a big reputation having played 35 times for his country and won a silver medal at the London Olympics in 2012 and he has proved to be a reliable source of goals from a wide position since moving to PSG in 2013.
Tottenham's move to sign Moura could see them snap up their first player in a January transfer window for three years, as they have not made a move in the mid-season transfer market since signing Dele Alli from MK Dons in 2015.
