30-year-old Brazilian winger Lucas Moura is likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur to join Fenerbahce in the coming days.

According to a report by TEAMtalk, Lucas Moura could join Fenerbahce in an out-of-window transfer. The Turkish club are eager to sign a new forward before their ongoing transfer window ends. And, they are keen on bringing Moura to the club.

It has been a while since the English transfer window ended. But, clubs in the Premier League can still sell their players to clubs from countries where the windows are still open. The Turkish federation requested FIFA to extend their winter transfer window after the tragic earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria.

FIFA has allowed them to extend the window until March 5. And, with less than two weeks left, Fenerbahce are pushing for the signature of the 30-year-old Tottenham winger.

Moura will be out of contract in the summer. And, there are no signs of a renewal. He will be a free agent in four months and will leave Tottenham for free. The Turkish club have identified the opportunity and are ready to sign him now.

They are not looking to pay a transfer fee, and it should not be a problem for Spurs given that he is set to leave for free in a few months. The Brazil international has not played a big part in the ongoing season and looks to be surplus to requirements. As a result, letting him leave now will make sense.

Moura joined Tottenham back in the winter of 2018 from Paris Saint-Germain. He has been an integral part of their setup ever since his arrival. But, he has fallen down the pecking order under Antonio Conte. And, injuries have not helped him either.

The 30-year-old has only made eight Premier League appearances in the ongoing season. And, a move away from the club might help the former PSG winger. Fenerbahce are nine points behind Super Lig leaders Galatasaray with a game in hand. They want to add more firepower to their ranks in the ongoing window to push for the title.

The Turkish club believe adding Moura to the squad will give them a more potent attack. The Brazil international will add more pace on the right flank and will give them an edge. And according to the report, Tottenham and Fenerbahce are in advanced talks over a deal for the 30-year-old.

His arrival could result in a late-season surge. Jorge Jesus’s men are keen on having him at the club. They are set to offer Moura a three-year deal with a weekly wage of £45,000 per week. With time running out in the Turkish transfer window, it will be interesting to see if Fenerbahce can strike deal with Tottenham Hotspur for the services of Lucas Moura.
