OL: Lucas Paqueta, it will be hot until the end

Lucas Paqueta makes Newcastle salivate, who are thinking very hard about attacking OL at the end of the transfer window. A transfer that could pay off big, and change everything for Lyon.

More than Houssem Aouar or Moussa Dembélé, it is the file that can change the face of the OL transfer window in August. Lucas Paqueta is still one of Lyon’s best players for the coming season, but the Brazilian has significant market value and interest from the Premier League. What to consider a hearty transfer even if it would also be a big sporting loss for OL? It may also depend on the face shown by the former Milanese at the start of the season, and his determination to find his best level. Otherwise, Jean-Michel Aulas could well be torn by the idea of ​​parting with it and pocketing the loot. Because Lucas Paqueta is a Brazilian international, and Newcastle has always had him in sight.

Two clubs pushed back to the Premier League

This is the information confirmed by the Caughoffside site, which recalls that the Magpies still have a lot of money to spend this summer, even if the Saudi owners are not throwing money away. In Newcastle, the name of Lucas Paqueta clearly makes people dream, especially since the former Lyonnais Bruno Guimaraes, who has integrated perfectly, speaks of him as the player who can allow the English club to take a step forward. This season, Newcastle are aiming for a quiet hold and a place in the Top 10 to secure, before continuing to grow to target European places as soon as possible. The place is therefore free for a big offensive signing, at a time when the 24-year-old Brazilian is considered ready to acclimatize physically to the Premier League. But so far, it is fashionable to remember that OL have not received any firm offer, and that if there are contacts, it is more between the leaders of Newcastle and the agents of the Brazilian player. for the moment. It remains to be seen whether this prospect appeals to Lucas Paqueta, who has recently rebuffed advances from West Ham and is also not tempted by a move to Arsenal.
