Lucas Moura has revealed he would be keen on a possible move to La Liga, as he was told of reported interest from Sevilla.

The Brazilian has played a total of 12 minutes of Premier Leaguue football for Tottenham so far this season, coming in the opening two matches of the campaign, but a tendon problem has kept him out of the side since then.

Whether Moura will be able to force his way into Antonio Conte’s plan when fit remains to be seen, with Heung-min Son, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski already battling it out for the two spots either side of Harry Kane.

Throughout the summer Moura was linked with a move away from Spurs, as he enters the final two years of his current contract in north London. He suggested earlier in the summer his plan was to see out the rest of the deal before leaving as a free agent.

Sevilla are one of the clubs rumoured to be keeping tabs on the forward, though it’s suggested they would prefer a loan move at least initially.

Discussing his future, Moura was vocal in his desire to play in Spain one day, with Sevilla evidently an option he would consider seriously.

“I didn’t know about Sevilla’s interest, but it’s a club that I like and a city that they speak very highly of,” Moura said via VamosMiSevilla.

“Playing in La Liga would be something fantastic for me, because I like it a lot.”
