Tottenham's $35 million signing of Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain is a fantastic piece of business for both the London club and fans of the Premier League on the whole.

Indeed, Moura did not start a single league game for Paris Saint-Germain after Neymar's arrival last summer cost him his place in the team.

Since joining PSG in January, 2013, Lucas has made 229 appearances, more than any other Brazilian player in the team's history, scoring 46 goals and providing 50 assists.

"But it is different if you sign Neymar or [Lionel] Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo". The expectation is that he can help us in the next three months but we cannot put too much pressure on him. "But if he doesn't score from the beginning, it's not a mistake". I am so happy to play with him again.

Lucas was in Paris on Thursday for personal reasons and he is unlikely to play against Liverpool on Sunday. I just want to play my own football, that's how it is, I want to make things happen. Dealing with a tense Premier League race and Champions League competition will require complicated squad juggling from Pochettino. Whatever the destination, I hope he will score a lot and he will return to the Brazilian national team. "It is a club decision, with the chairman, the administration and with the chief scout". For me, family and football are the most important things, they are in the same level.

Instead he moved to PSG and became, at the time, the club's most expensive signing.

"Of course this situation it's not a big deal and of course he understands".

"Maybe the player wants to be close, if they need some help, if they need to share with you problems from outside or they need help on the pitch".

Moura emerged as a serious target for Tottenham over the past month, with the winger having previously been linked with Manchester United.

However, Pochettino did suggest that Lucas should be able to fully integrate into Tottenham's style of play with time.
