Lucas Moura has been advised to sign for Arsenal from Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window by former Chelsea star Alex.

The Brazilian winger has found his playing time at PSG limited so far this season, with the 25-year-old having only made two substitute appearances for the French side in Ligue 1 this term.

His lack of playing time is likely to lead to speculation linking him with a move away from the French club in the January transfer window as he approaches the prime years of his career.

Former Chelsea star Alex played alongside Moura for two years and he feels that Arsenal would be a good club for the Brazilian to move to.

Speaking to French newspaper L’Equipe, Alex said: “I would like to see him at Arsenal. They play cleaner football, more technical.

“He had contacts, I believe. That would be a good option for him this winter.”

Arsenal were linked with a host of players during the summer transfer window but only ended up making two signings, as they wrapped up deals for Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gunners will look to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League when they take on Watford away next Saturday as they bid to continue climbing the table.

The north London side are currently fifth in the table and six points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games.
