PSG transfer news: Tottenham looking to sign Moura, Diarra prefers a move to PSG and more: 18 January 2018
Tottenham interested in Lucas Moura
Lucas Moura has struggled to get playing time at PSG. The 25-year-old has fallen down the pecking order this season and has only played for 72 minutes in Ligue 1. The Brazilian winger is considering leaving Paris in search of more game time.
The winger has to make a move if he wants to revive his fading chances of making the Brazilian World Cup squad. According to L'Equipe, Tottenham has shown an interest in signing the winger.
Earlier Manchester United were linked to the Brazilian but they seem to have dropped their interest in him. Tottenham are looking for attacking reinforcements and Lucas Moura fits the bill for them.
Lassana Diarra prefers to go PSG
Thiago Motta is the first choice deep-lying playmaker for PSG. The experienced French midfielder is doing well in his role, but he has suffered from injuries in recent times. Therefore, PSG are looking for a cover for him.
Diarra is a free agent after he terminated his contract with Al- Jazira (United Arab Emirates) last month. A lot of clubs have shown interest in signing Lassana Diarra as his experience can be handy in the business end of the season.
He was linked to Manchester United as he has already worked with their manager Jose Mourinho in the past. According to Le Parisien, Diarra prefers a move to the Ligue 1 leaders which is a blow for Manchester United.
PSG interested in Arsenal youngster
Reiss Nelson is one of the brightest prospects to have come out of the Arsenal academy. The 18-year-old winger made his Arsenal debut in the Community Shield matchup vs Chelsea. The English-born winger has made quite a few appearances in the Carabao cup and the Europa League this season.
His current contract at Arsenal will run out at the end of the season. No progress has been made with respect to his contract situation and therefore, Nelson has attracted interest from top European clubs.
Arsenal will lose him for free in the summer if they can't make him sign a contract extension. According to the Daily Mail, PSG and Real Madrid are closely monitoring the progress of the Arsenal academy graduate.
