Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura has admitted that he is “not happy” with his lack of playing time at the Parc des Princes and is ready to quit the club.
The 25-year-old, used just six times in all competitions this season, is rumoured to be on the radar of a number sides across the continent.
Arsenal have been monitoring the Brazilian’s situation at PSG, while Manchester United have also been linked during the January transfer window.
After going more than two months since his last Ligue 1 outing, the outcast midfielder concedes that it is now time to consider his options.
“It’s a brutal blow. I’m gutted that I’m no longer playing, to no longer be able to express myself as I was doing before,” he told L’Equipe. “I’m not happy. I thought I’d built something solid with this club, but that’s clearly not the case.”
Asked about a possible switch to La Liga, he added: “It is true that it could suit me. With my speed and technique, I could perform well there. But it doesn’t matter where I end up, I know what I’m capable of. I didn’t become an international by chance.”
Lucas, who rejected a move to Man United in favour of PSG in 2012, featured 44 times in Ligue 1 and the Champions League last season.
