Fantasy football tips: Lucas Moura – scout report

Tottenham have a new wing wizard on their books – and he could make some serious fantasy football waves.

Lucas Moura has been a regular feature during transfer windows down the years, with Manchester United close to signing him before he joined PSG in 2013.

But five years on, the Brazilian is heading to north London.

Moura has joined Spurs for a reported £25m fee after days of discussions, with the winger’s game time in the French capital severely limited after the arrival of international compatriot Neymar last summer.

Lucas had featured just five times for the French giants in Ligue 1 this season, falling behind the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Julian Draxler in the pecking order too.

But there’s no denying he’s effective.

Lucas wracked up 68 goals or assists in 153 league appearances in France and has plenty of Champions League experience, which Spurs will value ahead of their clash with Juventus next month.

What will Lucas bring to fantasy football?

Well the pacy Brazilian is likely to be a popular option given his reputation for destroying full backs.

It’s unknown whether Lucas will be a regular feature under Mauricio Pochettino but he certainly brings a new option from wide for the Spurs boss.

The likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Heung-min Son know they have more competition for places.

This season has been a bit of a write off for the 25-year-old, but last season the stats suggest he was one of the best players in France.

With an average WhoScored rating of 7.41, Lucas scored 12 goals and assisted another five in 29 Ligue 1 appearances.

Interestingly Harry Kane (7.85) is the only Spurs player who averages a better rating in the Premier League this campaign.

Not bad.

So what will he cost on Dream Team?

Well the last details are being finalised, but we estimated that’ll he be priced around the £4m mark.

That’s the same as Wilfried Zaha and marginally cheaper than the likes of Anthony Martial (£4.5m) and Theo Walcott (£4.5m).
