Lucas Paqueta wants to leave OL, and Arsenal are interested in him. The point on this file not yet boiling.
The transfer window will still last for more than a month, and Olympique Lyonnais is also expected to sell one of its major players. Lucas Paqueta, Brazilian international, is particularly followed by Arsenal. This interest has still not materialized despite the rumors that have persisted for a few weeks now. Are OL entitled to expect a serious offer from the Gunners, who estimate that the attacking midfielder is worth close to 40 million euros? Not at the moment, assures Fabrizio Romano, who confirms Arsenal’s interest, but no notable progress. ” At the moment there is really nothing concrete for Paqueta and Arsenal. There is an obvious interest because Edu (Arsenal sporting director) has a very strong bond with Paqueta and knows him very well. He had contact with his agent, but there was no formal offer.said the informant specializing in the transfer window on the Give Me Sport site.
Edu and Arsenal close in on Paqueta
At the moment, Arsenal are already finalizing another big transfer, with the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City. The Ukrainian has ample capacity to play left back, as he often did with City, or midfield, as is his case in selection. An arrival that could therefore overshadow the project to bring Lucas Paqueta back to North London. OL are therefore not about to get rid of the Brazilian, and that’s good because everyone is working in the same direction at the start of the season. Peter Bosz is counting on him, even if the Dutch coach seems to have understood that there is a good chance that the rest of the season will pass without him in the event of a sale. There is no doubt that the Lyon coach would like to be fixed as soon as possible, but for the moment, the timing of the transfer window does not allow to have this kind of certainty.
