According to Brazilian reports, Newcastle United has started negotiations with Tottenham about signing Lucas Moura.
The Athletic reported in January that the £23 million player was planning to depart Spurs when his contract expired in the summer.
Newcastle United appears eager to take advantage of the circumstances by securing the signing of Lucas Moura deal on a free transfer.
The Brazilian winger has made four appearances for the Under-21s but is yet to start a game for the London-based team this year.
Several teams, including Marseille, Lazio, and Roma, have reportedly expressed interest in signing the 30-year-old.
Flamengo is another potential suitor, but the player is currently more interested in playing in Europe.
