According to reports from BuzzSport via The Metro, Arsenal and Liverpool could launch bids in excess of €30million for PSG winger Lucas Moura. 

The 23-year-old’s 15 goals in 60 Ligue 1 appearances have helped the Parisians claim three consecutive French titles, but he’s often had to endure the role of supersub – especially in the Champions League – and could move to the Premier League in search of greater game-time.

Earlier this month, the Brazil international was linked with a move to Manchester United, having infamously came close to joining the Old Trafford ranks in 2012. He’s believed to have even passed a medical at Carrington, before deciding to join the French champions instead.

But according to BuzzSport, Premier League rivals Arsenal and Liverpool are also in contention to launch bids for Moura, who is particularly famed for his penetrative pace and technical trickery.

The French outlet claim PSG would likely accept an offer in excess of €30million, despite three-and-a-half-years remaining on the winger’s contract.
