Big boost for Premier League clubs as PSG says player is free to leave

Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery says he has encouraged Lucas Moura to look for another club in the January transfer window.

Lucas admitted this week that his lack of football has come as a “brutal blow”, with Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham said to be monitoring his situation.

Emery has now confirmed the club will listen to offers for the 25-year-old this month.

“I told Lucas what I thought, with all due respect to him. He no longer has the opportunity to have playing time in Paris and he will have more elsewhere,” he told a news conference on Tuesday.

“I talked to [sporting director] Antero Henrique and he didn’t talk about it, only players who are still here,” he said.

Emery said he was unclear on the future of midfielder Lassana Diarra. The player has been linked with a free transfer to the Ligue 1 leaders after leaving Al Jazira.
