Lucas Moura’s Tottenham Hotspur squad number revealed

Who’s buying a Lucas kit?

Finally, we can say it: Tottenham Hotspur have signed Lucas Moura! The Brazilian, signed in a £25m deal from Paris St-Germain, is the first January signing at Spurs since they signed Dele Alli (and loaned him back to MK Dons) in January of 2015.

Lucas will wear squad number 27 on his kit, which is a bit of an unusual selection. He wore the #7 shirt at PSG, but he obviously can’t have that one, since that’s Son Heung-Min’s number.

The #27 shirt doesn’t have an especially illustrious history at Tottenham. Previous wearers include Kevin Wimmer (2015-18), Iago Falque (2012-13), Ben Alnwick (2008-11), Calum Davenport (2005-07), Rohan Rickets (2003-05), Mark Gower (1999-2000), Andy Sinton (1995-1997), and Stephen Carr (1993-95).

Not exactly a list chock full of Tottenham Hotspur luminaries, but this just means that Lucas can take that number and make it his own.
