Who wants to buy Lucas?
According to Goal.com, there are two teams in Saudia Arabia interested in Moura, Al Hilal, and Al Nassr. While Lucas could like receive a heft payday playing in the oil-rich nation, at 28, the attacker likely has more ambition than dropping down to that level of play.
That same Goal article noted that Moura already had admirers in Italy with Napoli one teams are taken by the Brazilian.
Now, Italian publication Il Messaggero has Moura potentially linked with his former Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho at Roma. While the link is tenuous at best and Moura is now the fourth Lilywhite to be linked with a move to Italy with Mourinho, this move would potentially make sense.
Lucas Moura was a favorite under Mourinho appearing a ton under the Portuguese coach. Further, the more open play in Italy would likely suit Moura’s running style more than the Premier League, with the physicality he has to deal with.
Add in the fact that Moura kind of lacks a permanent position and now does seem like the time to move on the Brazilian. According to Transfermarkt.com, Moura is worth $27.5 million (£19.4) and with three years left on his contract with Spurs running until 2024, £20 million seems about right and could help considerably as Spurs look to rebuild.
While Moura is not at the top of the list of players to sell, he is a player that really has value for others and therefore is quite sellable.
