Spurs return to Premier League action this weekend with a trip to St. James’ Park to play the struggling Newcastle United, however, Gold has been looking further ahead to discuss potential departures this summer.
The Brazilian has provided an assist in each of his last two Premier League games and found the back of the net twice in his last six league games (via Transfermarkt).
Discussing the 28-year-old winger, Gold commented on previous bids the club had received for Moura in the past as well as possible reasons to sell the player.
He said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if someone who’s in-form right now, say Lucas Moura, Spurs I know have turned down some big offers for him in the past. (27:45)
“If another such big offer came in, because of how well he’s doing at the end of the season. I do wonder whether they look at that and they say he’s going to be 29 I think you look at that and you think do we take a big offer for him and then look for a player?
“He’s in an area where there’s a lot of players, do we look at that and think, okay, maybe we’re not going to get a bid for Lamela, say, but Lucas, kind of playing some of the best football he has in years – do we take the money for him and invest that money, say in a new centre back or something like that?”
Is Moura finished at Spurs?
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
It is interesting to hear Gold say Spurs have received healthy bids in the past for Moura and yet they have stuck with the Brazilian. The 28-year-old has only scored three goals in the Premier League this season but the majority of his appearances have come from off the bench.
Although Moura has not been a regular starter for Jose Mourinho, the last few weeks have shown some promise for the winger having played the full 90 minutes in Tottenham’s last three Premier League games (via Transfermarkt).
