Tottenham Hotspur agree fee with Paris Saint-Germain for Lucas Moura?

Tottenham have agreed a £25m deal with Paris Saint-Germain to sign Lucas Moura, with the Brazilian expected to complete his move to north London before Wednesday's transfer deadline.

But, when asked by Sky Sports yesterday if there was an update on the situation, the Argentinian said: "I saw him on your channel, but there is not too much to say". Still, I think it's pretty safe to assume that this transfer IS going to happen now.

Lucas Moura joined PSG in January 2013 and has since made over 150 appearances for the French side.

They will hope to recuperate a chunk of that from the sale of a player they bought for around 45 million euros and who helped them win four straight Ligue 1 titles.

Spurs have some hard games ahead in the coming weeks, having to play Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus in the next four outings.

Lucas is no doubt an exciting player but Tottenham really should be looking at following up his prospective signing by getting a top-drawer striker through the doors as well.

PSG have to sell to balance the books or else fall foul of UEFA's financial fair play rules following the world-record acquisition of Neymar and the loan signing of teenage French starlet Kylian Mbappe last August.

Olivier Giroud has been tipped for a £35m move to rivals Chelsea.

"I can not speak about rumours, he played the last game against Newport [County in the FA Cup], he's one player that is in the squad like different players and he's in our plan".

Pochettino denied that, though, saying: "No, he's not coming back". Maybe something happens. I can not confirm nothing. "One more that Manchester United added to their squad. It will be good to see him again".
