Star man Lucas Moura told to join Arsenal in January

Former Chelsea defender Alex has urged Lucas Moura to join Arsenal in the winter transfer window.

The Brazilian has been reportedly identified by Wenger as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

It’s being claimed that Arsenal could make a move for Moura in January and Alex has urged him to take up the chance if the Gunners come calling.

Moura has only made two substitutes appearances for PSG this season, he’s fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

 Alex has now urged him to move on if he is ever going to fulfill his potential.

Speaking to L’Equipe via the Daily Mail, Alex said: ‘I would like to see him at Arsenal.

‘They play cleaner football, more technical.

‘He had contacts, I believe. That would be a good option for him this winter.’

Moura situation is a bit unfortunate, considering last season was his best on a personal level since he joined the French club in 2013.

He would have been hoping to play a prominent role this season but the big money summer arrivals have pushed him further down the pecking order.

Arsenal could get Moura on a cheap in January if he continues to be on the fringe of PSG’s first team.

The French club may also be compelled to sell some of their players due to the ongoing investigations from UEFA for financial fair play irregularities and Moura could be moved on to help them balance their books.
