The PSG winger was spotted at St Pancras station on Tuesday morning - having zoomed in on the Eurostar - ahead of a move to North London.

The Brazilian, 25, was reported to have been at Spurs' Enfield home last week to discuss personal terms, which have been agreed.

There are conflicting reports over whether he has completed a medical or not.

Having been used sparingly by unconvinced PSG boss Unai Emery this season, Moura is available for Spurs in the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino's men play Juventus in the last-16 of the competition next month and the rapid star would be a handy addition.

Moura, who has 36 caps for Brazil, has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all linked in the past.

He moved to Paris in January 2013, where he has won four Ligue 1 titles and the Coupe de France three times.

This season, however, he has made just six appearances - all from the bench - after PSG brought in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to play alongside Edinson Cavani.

Pochettino said over the weekend that he wanted to make "quality signings" before Wednesday's deadline.

The Spurs coach added: "Of course we have some options.

"We are going in the last few days to see if we can add players that add good quality.

"If not then it won't happen. But it's about in the next few days to see if we have some possibilities with some players."
