Brazilian sources keep reporting that Paris Saint Germain’s Lucas Moura is currently wanted by Premier League clubs.
Today, it’s Goal Brasil who says that both Arsenal and Liverpool have recently showed their intentions to get the player for the season, although Italian side Roma are the main competitors.
It’s claimed that his agent Wagner Ribeiro, who’s already in Paris for the transfer of Neymar, is set to have a couple of meetings this week to discuss Lucas’ future. The winger’s days at the club are said to be ‘counted’.
This info kind of backs up a story from UOL which was published this Sunday. They claimed that Arsenal were the most interested club in England, and even had a €30m bid rejected by the French side.
UOL got confirmation from people close to Lucas saying he’s very close on leaving. And although it was thought that Neymar would work to keep his friend at the club, the website claims the Brazilian star isn’t working for that.
