Could Edu persuade this brilliant Brazilian to join the Arsenal project?

Arsenal’s Technical Director Gaspar Edu was recruited from Brazil and has been instrumental in bringing many South Americans to the club, of which the most impressive was his first signing Gabriel Martinelli.

Well we may need his help again, as according to Calciomercato, both Arsenal and PSG are interested in signing the Lyon attacking midfielder Lucas Paquetá, who started his career with Flamengo. He has been in Europe for three years, he played his first season at Milan before moving to Ligue 1 with Lyon.

He has been extremely impressive and has scored 16 goals in 55 games for the French giants, and will not come cheap, but at just 24 he fits Arteta’s profile comfortably.

Obviously Paqueta is more likely to win trophies if he moved to PSG, but having proved himself in Ligue 1 he may want to move to the best League in the world to show his worth. Also Lyon may not be keen to let him go to a rival.

So, I think Edu needs to go and speak to his compatriot and sell him Arteta’s project, and if we can guarantee him Champions League football as well, that could be the clincher…

Go on Edu, go get him….

  1. A fantastic player and a great CAM. Can assist and score goals and good at taking free kicks, similar in profile to Madison, but probably cheaper. Edu, go get him.

    1. He’ll be perfect for our new formation especially with Xhaka playing in a more advanced role and Paqueta can fill that position must better

  2. No need to splash our cash on another CAM when we already have Odegaard and Smith-Rowe as a replacement. Rather want to see Tielemans coming to take Xhaka’s place. And offcourse one or two strikers.

    1. He’s also a great box to box player
      he could play on xhaka’s position
      i watch him a lot when he was in flamengo
      he could play DM,CM,CAM,RW,LW and played really great as a false 9 too
      hes was a kid back then, but carrying the team here

  3. Do we neea such players now?. What i think we need now is a striker or strikers and a good mildfielders to replace xhaka.

  4. Arsenal should definitely go all out to sign Lucas Paqueta. His quality, international experience and his ability to play different roles in midfield and as a central striker makes him a great asset, thus, improving the squad and depth. Arsenal needs at least two quality and outstanding players for each position on the field of play, to match and compete with the likes of Manchester city, Liverpool and Chelsea.

  5. The mark of a great team is to have a bench that is as good as the on-pitch eleven. That’s only possible if you have 20-22 quality outfield players.
    So another good CAM and a DM in place of Elneny can only be a good thing for Arsenal if we want to compete with the best both in Europe and domestically

  6. Bring in tielemans then reintegrate AMN to replace xhaka and elneny respectively,reintegrate saliba for cb and promote norton-cafu as back up for rb and bring in one or two strikers if laca choose to leave or not.
