Craig Burley examines Tottenham’s FA Cup draw at Newport County, which adds a replay to an already-challenging stretch of matches for Spurs.

Tottenham have agreed a transfer fee of roughly £25 million with Paris Saint-Germain for winger Lucas Moura, sources have told ESPN FC.

Spurs had been locked in talks with the Ligue 1 club over the fee, with PSG targeting a deal worth €30m (£26.4m) for the 25-year-old winger after already lowering their asking price from €40m.

But sources said the terms have now been settled around €28.4m (£25m), and the deal is only awaiting personal terms and a medical, which has been set for Tuesday.

Moura met Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and manager Mauricio Pochettino in London last week and the club are confident they have agreed personal terms with the Brazilian, who earns around £75,000-a-week at the Parc des Princes.

A work permit would also still need to be arranged for Moura before the 11 p.m. deadline on Wednesday, shortly after the end of their Premier League match against Manchester United, but there should be little difficulty there as Moura has won 36 caps for his country.

Borussia Dortmund had also been linked with Moura amid the imminent departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Spurs’ rivals Arsenal.

Spurs also remain keen on signing Bordeaux’s Malcom for the start of the summer but any deal for the Brazilian, 20, can be agreed outside the winter window, so they are in no hurry to table a firm bid.

Spurs youngster Luke Amos, who was on the bench for Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Newport County, is expected to leave the club on loan before the end of the month, with League Two side Stevenage Borough currently the favourites to sign the midfielder.

Kyle Walker-Peters is also interested in a loan move to play regular first-team football, but Spurs want to keep the 20-year-old as cover.
