Lucas Paqueta is a courted player on the transfer market. The Brazilian is particularly popular in the Premier League.
OL will have high goals next season, whether in Ligue 1 or the Coupe de France. The recent arrival of John Textor has given new dynamism to the Les Gones project. While some players were inclined to jump ship, the situation has therefore changed. Especially since for the moment, OL are having a very nice summer transfer window, with the remarkable arrivals of Nicolas Tagliafico, Corentin Tolisso, Alexandre Lacazette and Johann Lepenant. And it’s probably not over, Peter Bosz wishing for the arrival of a reliable number 6 at the highest level. However, some cases are still pending. This is the case of Lucas Paqueta. The Brazilian midfielder is coveted today, but it is difficult to know where he will play next season.

The English press reports an interest from Newcastle and Arsenal for Paqueta. Destinations that appeal to the former AC Milan player. OL are absolutely not opposed to the departure of their crack but will not facilitate the operation. A price beyond 60 million euros is even mentioned. For his part, Paqueta is discreet for the moment. According to information from the journalist of CBS Sports, Ben Jacobs, the recent arrival of John Textor at OL has turned Paqueta’s plans upside down in the transfer window. The Brazilian international, still under contract until 2025 in Lyon, is even ready to stay in the Rhône and make a new deal with OL to continue the adventure for a little longer than expected. It is therefore difficult to see him leave this summer for the Premier League, even if this destination pleases Paqueta. The transfer window is still long and a lot can happen. Especially since Arsenal and Newcastle do not lack the means to invest in a player. If Paqueta stayed in Lyon, it would in any case be a new strong signal sent to the competition but also to the fans about the new project. Regarding the Houssem Aouar file, the French player still wants to leave. Betis seem to be the best placed team to get him.
