Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura says he would ideally like to fulfil his contract in North London amid interest from a number of Premier League clubs for his signature.

The Brazilian striker has been linked with a move away this summer with interest really building in the last week or so.

Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Leeds United have all reportedly shown interest in the 30-year-old who has two-years left on his deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But the versatile forward has already made it clear that he would like to stay with Spurs in North London.

“The idea is to fulfil the contract,” he explained this past summer.

“It has one more year, with the option of one more, on the part of the club.

“So at the end of this season now, if the club wants to extend another year, they have that option.

“But my idea is this. Finalising the contract, playing in the Champions League, we haven’t played the Champions League for two years, and now it could be, perhaps, my last Champions League there at Tottenham. So then the idea is to stay there, fulfil the contract, then be free, then decide where I’m going.”
