Villa boss Steven Gerrard had been seeking attacking reinforcements following the club’s disappointing start to the season.

Meanwhile, Eddie Howe was scouting another forward to provide competition for Callum Wilson and record signing Alexander Isak.

However, Tottenham refused to sell Moura despite the fact that he has less than 12 months remaining on his current contract.

Spurs chiefs will now have to offer the Brazil international an extension if they don’t want to lose him for nothing next year.

The Italian now favours Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison in attack, leaving little room for the former PSG star, who has played just 12 minutes of football this season after being ruled out of Tottenham’s last three fixtures with a calf injury.

Conte has confirmed that he is suffering with a tendon issue which could keep him out of action for a number of weeks.

Earlier this week, the Spurs boss said: “About Lucas, he has this inflammation in his tendon.

“I hope to recover him very soon, because for sure when I was a player, I had a lot of pain in my tendon.

“You know very well tendon inflammation doesn’t finish in only one week, two weeks.”
