Lucas Moura believes a switch from Paris Saint-Germain to Tottenham could be the right move for him in the January transfer window, Sky Sports News has been told.

Spurs remain interested in the 25-year-old as a potential alternative to Malcom - a fellow Brazilian at Bordeaux - according to Sky sources.

Moura has been impressed with how Tottenham play and believes Mauricio Pochettino could be the right manager for him to progress his career.

However, a string of other clubs are also understood to be keen on the forward, with Sevilla now interested and Borussia Dortmund considering a move if they sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal.

Sky in Italy reported this week that Moura's representatives met with Napoli, while Valencia and Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng Taishan are also interested.

PSG are open to offers for the Brazil international this month and are willing to let him go for a fee in the region of £23m.

Bordeaux have so far refused to budge on their valuation of the 20-year-old, set at around £45m.

Malcom signed a new contract at Bordeaux last summer that runs until 2021, while Moura's deal at PSG expires in 18 months' time.

Moura has 36 caps and four goals for Brazil, while U23 star Malcom has yet to make a senior international appearance.
