Tottenham Hotspur sign Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain

Tottenham completed the signing of attacker Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening - and the club's supporters raved about the deal on Twitter.

The winger joined Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain for just £25million on transfer deadline day.

Lucas arrives having made just 5 substitute appearances totalling 72 minutes of on-field action this season in Ligue 1 - things were made particularly hard for him with the summer arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Tottenham Hotspur's new Brazil midfielder Lucas Moura gestures to fans on the pitch at half-time during the football match against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on January 31, 2018.

It looks as if Lucas's big-money move to PSG from Sao Paolo took a toll on him, but when you come into a team with the weight of expectations the way he did, it's sometimes hard to live up to it. But it is different to if you sign Neymar or Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Whatever the destination, I hope he will score a lot and he will return to the Brazilian national team.

"We've improved a lot since last season".

He is fast and can run forward and link the play perfectly.

Spurs were beaten 2-0 at Anfield last season but have shown resilience this year with imposing away performances against the likes of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

"He has some different qualities, but it is not going to change our principles, our philosophy of playing football is so strong".

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.

A Tottenham video posted on Twitter to announce Lucas' arrival ended with him and Aurier sharing a carefully choreographed handshake.

Pochettino again added: "I think the team played so well and I am so pleased with that and so happy".

"Of course this situation it's not a big deal and of course he understands".

Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are two Pochettino stalwarts, and, when Tottenham have lined up with three behind Harry Kane this season, it has been largely due to the brilliant form of Son Heung-min.

'For us it's very helpful to have him.

Now that he's here, he has the opportunity to get his career back on track under a manager with a proven track record of developing players.
