Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura has been pictured arriving in London as a £22million move to Tottenham edges closer to completion.

The Brazilian was seen walking through London’s St Pancras station on Tuesday morning after stepping off the Eurostar from Paris, and is expected to head straight to Enfield to discuss personal terms and complete a medical.

Moura had his hood up and held the hand of his wife Larissa Saad as they quickly made their way through the station with a sizeable entourage.

Tottenham agreed a fee with the Ligue 1 leaders over the weekend, but only finalised the finer details of the deal on Monday night, giving the 25-year-old the green light to travel to England.

PSG have been striving to balance the books after spending heavily to sign Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer, and Lucas was an obvious choice to be shifted after his place in the side was usurped by the young Frenchman.

He has failed to start a single game for PSG this season and appeared off the bench just six times. But with 16 goals and seven assists to show from the previous campaign, he has still done enough to convince Mauricio Pochettino of his ability.

The north London club are likely to end their long-term interest in signing Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha as a result of Lucas’ arrival. 

Although Zaha has previously made it clear he would be interested in a move, a series of match-winning performances for the Eagles has seen his valuation soar.

Tottenham are restricted by budget constraints as they continue their ambitious plan to move into a state-of-the-art stadium by next season, and there is a fear that the Ivory Coast international is now beyond their budget.
