Former Lyon striker Fred heaps praise on Lucas Moura ahead of PSG move
Former Lyon forward Fred has heaped praise on Lucas Moura ahead of the attacker’s January transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
Lucas, 20, will head to the Parc des Princes in less than two months, after PSG agreed a fee worth €45million (£35.5m) with São Paulo earlier this summer.
Fred, who spent four years at Lyon from 2005, has praised the Tricolor Paulista star and believes he will be a hit in France.
He said: "Lucas is the greatest revelation of Brazilian football for ten years.
"Lucas is strong, fast and very technical. He will be a hit in France."
The Brasileirão’s leading goalscorer, who helped Fluminense claim this season’s league title, believes former Flu player Thiago Silva will be a great influence on Lucas at PSG.
Fred added: "Thiago Silva is the biggest idol of the recent history of Fluminense. Lucas can achieve great things with him in the locker room."
