It's fair to say Tottenham have been a bit of an afterthought in January's transfer window thus far, but that is set to change.

Liverpool dominated the headlines at the beginning of the window after signing Virgil van Dijk for £75 million from Southampton and they went on to sell Philippe Coutinho for £145 million just weeks later.

Arsenal have been at the centre of attention for the past couple of weeks with the Alexis Sanchez saga coming to a close. The Chilean jumped shipped to fierce rivals Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved to Arsenal in the opposite direction.

Now the club is locked in negotiations with Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but it seems as though the red half of north London are resisting meeting Dortmund's £56 million asking price for the Gabon goal machine.

However, Tottenham are now prepared to make some noise of their own and after struggling for an out-and-out wide man to compliment the electric Son Heung-min, they appear to have found their man.

Lucas Moura is set to join Mauricio Pochettino's men in a £22 million deal from Paris Saint-Germain and French outlet RMC are reporting that the Brazilian winger has already agreed personal terms with the club after meeting chairman Daniel Levy in London on Friday.

The 25-year-old has fell down the pecking order in the French capital with all the big-money arrivals like Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler, but he is still a frightening wide man on his day with a bag of tricks Spurs don't really have.

Earlier this week, the move didn't look likely as it seemed as though Moura wanted a move to Spain.

"I believe I’d be well suited to La Liga, with my speed and my technique,” Moura told L’Equipe, in quotes cited by Sevilla Info.

“I think I could perform well there but the truth is it does not matter where I play as I know I am capable and will work hard.

“I am not disgusted at not being able to play more here and cannot express myself, things have changed this weekend and I’m not happy.”

There's no doubt that Moura is a serious upgrade on Moussa Sissoko's makeshift right-wing performances.
