Marco Giacomelli of the Evening Standard reported Tottenham want to move quickly to sign him because they are "conscious of the need to arrange a work permit for the 36-cap Brazil global before Wednesday's 11 p.m. [GMT] deadline".

Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain have agreed a fee of £25m for Lucas Moura, according to Sky Sports.

However, according to BBC Sport, Spurs have agreed to pay £25m for the Brazilian worldwide, and a transfer is expected to go through before Wednesday's deadline.

Lucas has had his eye on a move for some time, having been limited to just six cameo appearances in all competitions this season. Still, I think it's pretty safe to assume that this transfer IS going to happen now.

Pochettino recently revealed that Spurs will be active in the final days of the ongoing transfer window and will look to sign quality players that can improve his squad.

Asked specifically about Moura, Pochettino replied: "There's a lot of rumours about different players and I never talk about rumours".
