LUCAS MOURA’S agent is still in talks with Arsenal despite Tottenham agreeing a £25m transfer with Paris Saint-Germain.
According to L’Equipe, Spurs have shaken hands with the French giants but the Gunners are still in the fold.
The Brazilian striker is poised to leave Paris before Wednesday’s deadline and is desperate to join the Premier League.
PSG won’t sell the 25-year-old for less than £25m following a very expensive summer that saw them signing Neymar in a record-breaking £200m from Barcelona.
The Brazil international’s move to the Emirates however will depend on what happens in the Gunners’ pursuit in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund.
The Gabon international is keen to join Arsenal but the north London giants have yet to match Dortmund’s £60m asking price.
The next 48 hours will be critical to Aubameyang’s future and until then Moura is seen as an alternative.
Moura joined PSG in 2013 from Sao Paulo and has since scored 46 goals in 229 appearances.
This season however the Brazilian has been struggling for playing time as he has only appeared in five league games.
