Wolves transfer news: Lucas Moura on Wanderers' radar

Wolves are reportedly interested in a potential free swoop for Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura.

That is the somewhat surprising claim from Brazilian outlet Torcedores.

The 30-year-old is set to depart the north London giants after six seasons.

Moura has lost prominence at Spurs in recent times. The arrival of Dejan Kulusevski has really had an impact on his game time, and the South American has never played more than 45 minutes in the Premier League this season.

He’s made just 21 appearances across all competitions, for just 657 minutes on the pitch.

It has been a horrible past couple of weeks for Moura.

The former PSG star has had howlers in each of his last two appearances for Spurs.

Against Everton on April 3, he made an awful tackle of Michael Keane, who was lucky to get away unscathed.

He was sent off, and Everton then went and equalised through Keane late on, after Tottenham had been 1-0 up.

Moura missed the next three games through suspension, and his next appearance came in the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool.

Spurs worked very hard to get back to 3-3 having been 3-0 down. But Moura, on as a substitute, inexplicably gave the ball away to Diogo Jota to slot home a winner right at the death.

There is surely very little chance of Moura remaining at Spurs.

And Wolves are apparently looking at making a free swoop, for a player that cost Spurs £23 million. But Newcastle United and Aston Villa are also keen.

Torcedores report the story because there is also interest from Brazilian club Flamengo.

Wolves can do better than Lucas Moura, even if he would be coming in as a free agent

It will be interesting to see if Wolves do make a play for Moura this summer.

Arguably, this is not a player that too many Wolves fans will be clamouring for.

The winger has not made an impact at all for Spurs this season, and hasn’t scored a single goal for the first-team or even assisted. And last term, he scored just two goals in 34 Premier League appearances.

He may have Premier League experience, but Wolves should be looking to be a bit more ambitious this summer.
