Arsenal have little hope of signing Lucas Moura in January following claims he is on his way to China.

And claim Lucas has agreed pre-contract terms with Super League side Beijing Guoan.

The report says he has made the decision to move to the Far East in January following talks with former team-mates Ezequiel Lavezzi and Renato Augusto.

This is despite former Chelsea and PSG defender Alex advising him to join Arsenal in the Premier League.

“If I was in his place, I would have already left to make an impact elsewhere,” he said.

“Even if England does not seem favourable, I would like to see him at Arsenal. They play cleaner football, more technical.”
