Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura welcomes ex-PSG pals Cavani, Thiago Silva to England

Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura has spoken of seeing former PSG teammates Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani join him in the Premier League this summer.

Thiago Silva signed for Chelsea this summer, while Cavani is now with Manchester United.

Lucas said, "I'm happy for Thiago. He's closer to me here in London. I'm happy for him, he's one of the best defenders in the world, I've always said that. He plays in a great team. For him and for Cavani too, it will undoubtedly be even more difficult to play in the Premier League.

"There are a lot of great players. And I hope to find Marqui (PSG defender Marquinhos) again one day (laughs)!"
