Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal are linked with Lucas Moura and Tottenham eye a new right-back…
First up and the Daily Star are reporting that Arsenal have made their move to try and sign winger Lucas Moura with Paris St-Germain ready to cash in at £27m this summer.
Arsene Wenger is in the market for attacking reinforcements as he looks to build a title-challenging squad and the Gunners have so far been frustrated in their attempts to sign Monaco star Thomas Lemar.
It seems the Arsenal chief is now looking at alternative targets and Moura has emerged as a viable option as his future is in serious doubt following the arrival of Neymar from Barcelona.
Moura has been a huge success since joining PSG from Sao Paulo in 2013 as he’s scored 45 goals and provided 47 assists in 220 appearances to help the French giants win 15 trophies.
However, Neymar’s arrival will see the 24-year-old fall down the pecking order and the Daily Starare citing a report from UOL Esporte that claims Arsenal are showing a strong interest in signing him.
The Brazilian outlet says the north Londoners have already seen their opening proposal knocked back but PSG are ready to do business if at least £27m is put on the table and Moura will be willing to make a move away from France if he’s guaranteed first team football.
Moura is an exciting wide attacker who would give Wenger plenty of options in the final third so I think he’d be an excellent addition if Arsenal could lure him to the Emirates this summer.
