Lucas Moura has claimed that no player at Tottenham Hotspur has actively said that they want to leave the club but the fans are just not buying it.
Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will all see their contracts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expire next summer.
Eriksen is reportedly determined to leave in January, and the Denmark international has not exactly shown his best form this season – scoring just one goal in 12 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in all competitions.
Lucas has told ESPN Brasil that the atmosphere inside the dressing room is strong, while the attacker has also insisted that no player has expressed a desire to leave the club.
The Brazilian’s words, though, have been doubted by the Spurs fans on social media.
It is difficult to know exactly what is happening behind-the-scenes at the club, but the opinion of the Tottenham supporters on this particular subject is fairly clear.

Highly doubt that

I don’t know why they keep hiding that which is blatant. Or maybe it’s just loss of team form? We’ll come back stronger next season!
