Lucas Moura Joins Tottenham for £25m from Paris Saint-Germain

Lucas Moura Joins Tottenham for £25m from Paris Saint-Germain

"It's a chapter in my life, a new challenge for me".

Whilst the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min and Erik Lamela have provided plenty of chances for Harry Kane, and the Englishman has often taken those chances, they are also lacking more back up. To make new friends is always a pleasure and I will give my best for the club.

"My expectation is that the player can help us. But if he doesn't score form the beginning, it's not a mistake".

Pochettino has been favouring a team which focuses on a narrow attack, and winger Lucas may even have to alter his style of play to fit in.

"I think they're looking at somebody around that €20-25-30 million".

"He's still doing things. Maybe he needs to work alone a little bit to reach the team's level".

It was reported Moura was a target for Napoli, Sevilla, Valencia and a club from the China Super League, and the attacker is keen to play his part in Spurs' Champions League campaign. The 20-year-old defender has only made five appearances since arriving to Tottenham from Estudiantes in the summer as a prospect for the future.

While Pochettino is no doubt excited to have players coming into the club, it's giving him problems. "It is a club decision, with the chairman, the administration and with the chief scout".

"We have got to put in the same performance as we did against United". Lucas is a multi-talented player and will add several dimensions to Tottenham's style of play.

Going from playing 2,426 minutes in 37 games, including 29 starts last season, to 78 minutes spread across just five games, Lucas' future at PSG had been in doubt throughout the January transfer window. But if later this year we succeed in winning something, a cup or something like that, I'm going to try and make him say thank you in English.

"It's never happened before and probably won't happen again, but it was a very good start".

Tottenham fans could get their first glimpse of him at Anfield on Sunday as they travel to face Liverpool, whilst his first home game could be against rivals Arsenal next week.
