Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura has played down suggestions he is set to leave the club. 

The PSG forward has been linked with a move to The Emirates as a possible replacement for the soon to be departing Alexis Sanchez or Meust Ozil.

However, the Brazilian says he only has plans to work his way back into the PSG first-team.

The 25-year-old who netted 19 times in 52 appearances for the Parisian’s last season is yet to be handed a start this term under Unai Emery following the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the summer transfer window.

However, Moura told UOL Esporte that he’s determined to become a regular again.

‘Now I eat by following rules. I don’t eat pizzas and barbecue food anymore, despite how much I miss them. ‘But I am concentrating on improving my physical performance. Whatever the situation with the national team, that is Tite’s decision.

‘I need to concentrate on improving at PSG. The season began in a difficult way for me, but my aim is to win back my starting place and the great moments that I had last year.’

It comes as a blow to Arsenal, who are looking for replacement for their wantaway stars. Julian Draxler is another who has been tipped for a New Year move.

Gooners, give us your thoughts in the comments…

 

One response to “PSG star speaks out about transfer rumours”

    Decent player, no doubt about that but for all the times I have watched him I have never thought ‘I wish he played for us’ or that he was a superstar in the making. Truth be told he has failed to live up to the hype from when he was a kid and I think won a youth world cup with Brazil but then again every new kid on the block is touted as the new Pelé zico Ronaldo Ronaldinho etc, remember robinho (check spelling) Real Madrid and Man City!
