Former Brazilian international defender Alex has urged Lucas Moura to join Arsenal.
The midfielder has fallen out of favour with Paris Saint-Germain this season, following the arrivals of megabucks duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and is struggling for game time at present.
Moura has to vie with the likes of the above, as we all Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Javier Pastore and Hatem Ben Arfa for appearances, and he has been urged to move on in search of regular action.
“If I was in his place, I would have already left to make an impact elsewhere,” Alex said.
“Spanish football could suit him – he could take advantage of the space with his speed and technique.
“Even if England does not seem favourable, I would like to see him at Arsenal.
“They play cleaner football, more technical.”
With the prospect of losing Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil before next season, it will be essential to bring in a top replacement or two into the squad, and the French giants could be a good place to start.
We have been linked with moves for Cavani, Julian Draxler, Adrien Rabiot and Moura, and their wealth of options could well lead them to agreeing to sell.
Moura arrived in Paris with a huge rating from Brazil, but has failed to set the league alight, but his ability remains for all to see. The Brazilian will never match the goalscoring prowess of his rivals at his club, but has a record of better than a goal for every five matches in Ligue 1, and could well flourish under new tutelage.
Arsenal’s style of play is believed to be of benefit to him, but would he be a worthy replacement for Ozil or Alexis?
