It is looking more and more likely that Tottenham are to complete a deal for PSG winger Lucas Moura for £22 million.
The Telegraph is reporting that the Brazilian midfielder was shown around Spurs’ training ground ahead of a January switch.
£25.2m-rated Moura is recognised for his quick pace and impressive dribbling abilities, but it seems that Liverpool’s rivals Spurs are set to sign him.
You do wonder why Jurgen Klopp is not sniffing around the impressive star at such a bargain price – he’d be the perfect replacement for Philippe Coutinho, and would provide great competition for the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.
It seems that a fair few Liverpool fans on social media share the same viewpoint, and think the Liverpool should hijack Spurs’ deal for the attacker.
We took to Twitter to select the best responses to the Moura news, and it seems a lot want to see the player at Anfield…
Just 22 million for Lucas Moura?? We should be all on that. But knowing us.

Promes is a quality signing for Southampton to be honest. As is Lucas Moura to Spurs. This next week with everyone sign players while we sit on our arse doing nothing is going to be unbearable #LFC

25m euros for Lucas Moura is stupidly cheap, that's one player I would love at Liverpool.#LFC
