Lucas Moura 'completes Tottenham Hotspur medical'

Former Tottenham player Chris Waddle believes that Lucas Moura's raw pace and ability to beat a man will be something that makes him a success at the club, following his £25m deadline day move from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 25-year-old winger and 36-time Brazil global is yet to start a Ligue 1 match this season, limited to only six appearances in all competitions under PSG head coach Unai Emery.

MAURICIO POCHETTINO has warned new signing Lucas Moura not to expect an automatic place in Tottenham's starting XI. "It's a new chapter in my life, a new challenge for me. Maybe he needs to work alone a little bit to reach the team's level".

Pochettino also confirmed Lucas would replace Argentinian defender Juan Foyth in Tottenham's Champions League squad for the knock-out stages.

"It's true that things developed quite quickly, but we still need time to get to know each other and find our feet together". Many quality players struggle in six months or one year to adapt to the team, the club, the Premier League.

This season has been a frustrating one as he has rarely featured for PSG after the French club signed a number of high-profile players including global team-mate Neymar.

His progress stalled in France, particularly after the big-money buys of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer, and Moura may not find it easy at his new club either.

Although he has barely featured for PSG this season, he was an important player during the 2016/17 campaign.

Lucas, 25, has always been linked with a move away from the French side and on Deadline Day he has finally got his transfer.

Neymar insists his Paris Saint-Germain career is just getting started as the runaway French league leaders prepare for a crucial stretch of matches that will likely define their season. I think that is so strong, the attitude of the team. Moura has been capped 30 times by Brazil and lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2013.
