Arsenal prepared to launch a bid for £67.5million Ligue 1 star

Arsenal has told the representative of Lucas Paqueta that they will bid for him in this transfer window, according to

The Brazilian currently plays for Lyon in France, and he has been one of the finest players in Ligue 1.

He struggled during his first spell in Europe at AC Milan, but the move to Lyon has revitalised him, and he could try out at a bigger club again.

He has been reluctant to leave Lyon for some time now, having rejected Newcastle United’s approach in the January transfer window.

However, it seems his stance is changing, and he might finally agree to a move.

The report claims Arsenal is optimistic that they can land the Brazilian, and the most important issue now is paying his transfer fee.

Lyon values him at £67.5million, an immense sum, but the Gunners are not scared, and they will table their own valuation to kick-start negotiations.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Paqueta has been in fine form at Lyon for much of the time he has been at the French club.

The midfielder will be an added quality to our group, and he could force Emile Smith Rowe to leave.

However, he is more experienced and likely to be more productive, which is what our current rebuild needs.

  1. I would hope he’d be seen largely as a tielemans alternative. Can’t imagine we’re thinking of ESR leaving – 10 goals last year without even starting many games.

  2. I follow him since his teenage years here in Brazil, he was carrying the biggest team of the country (flamengo) on his own, this guy its really good, an awesome player to replace xhaka.
    And he can easily play on the wings, as a CAM and as a false 9
    I really hope we get him

  3. Arsenal needs at least one midfielder but two is ideal.our current targets are
    Lucas Paqueta

    However,I think we should rather sign James Ward-prowse and add anyone of the above mentioned if possible.
    If we will sign someone then it should be James Ward-prowse.Our major challenge going into the new season is quality in midfield.


    1.He has vast EPL experience

    2.He is matured at 27 years.He can give us 5 to 7 seasons.

    3.He can give us that strength,bite and tenacity in the midfield.A good tacker and scores goals too.A box to box player.

    4.He is a free kick specialist,which we don’t have at Arsenal now.One of the best free kick takers in EPL if not the best.

    5.He was nominated as the EPL best player of the season as a sou player with all due respect to them.
    He may cost 45m-50m in today’s transfer market.

    I think he will add a lot to this Arsenal team.

  4. If Thiery Henry rates him highly I think we should go for him watched his videos he pulls defenders to him unlocking space and that’s what arsenal need and haven’t had in longtime someone to free up they strikers an attacking magnet BUY HIM!!!
