Arsenal target Lucas Moura is not thinking of leaving Paris Saint Germain, even though reports of Arsenal interest have continued to gather momentum.
The Gunners have reportedly identified the Brazilian as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez and have made him a winter transfer target.
However, Moura has revealed he is focusing on improving at PSG and forcing his way back into Unai Emery’s plans, in the process handing Arsenal a huge blow.
“Now I eat by following rules. I don’t eat pizzas and barbecue food anymore, despite how much I miss them,” he told UOL Esporte via the Daily Cannon.
“But I am concentrating on improving my physical performance.
Whatever the situation with the national team, that is Tite’s decision.
“I need to concentrate on improving at PSG. The season began in a difficult way for me, but my aim is to win back my starting place and the great moments that I had last year.”
Moura has made just two substitute appearances for PSG this season, after being pushed down the pecking order by the arrivals of big money signings Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe.
The Brazilian scored 19 goals last season but face a fight to match that tally this term due to increased competition for places.
Arsenal, meanwhile, would offer him the chance to play regularly as we will need to sign a new winger if Alexis continues to stall on a new deal.
