Report reveals reasons why Arsenal has not sped up their interest in Ligue 1 star

Arsenal has a serious interest in Lucas Paqueta, according to multiple reports.

The midfielder has been one of the finest players in Europe since he moved to Lyon in 2020 from AC Milan.

He is settled at the Ligue 1 club and has been reluctant to leave them.

He was one of the best players in the French top-flight last season, and his performances have attracted strong interest from Arsenal. 

Fans would have expected the Gunners to make an early move for him, but he is still at Lyon and will probably remain their player until next month.

A report has now revealed why they are not in a hurry to finalise the transfer.

UOL reports that Arsenal is relaxed firstly because there is no serious competition for his signature.

Second, there is more than a month left in this transfer window, so there is time to get the deal sorted.

Just Arsenal Opinion

If this report is true, then it is the wrong approach from us in this transfer pursuit.

The midfielder has been an exciting player to watch, and other clubs could be silently plotting to sign him.

They could beat us and swiftly complete the transfer for his signature.

  1. I expect this latest rumour to go the way of 99.5% of all other bogus rumours In other words, it will come to nothing and disappear.

    I also believe that when we DO sign a major name, it will be out of the blue, in the same way that we signed Vieira.
    It is why I have long since given up expecting Tielemans to arrive.

      1. Absolutely not lugdush
        Unless your Portuguese or follow Portuguese football I would suggest 99%of our fan base had never heard of him ,but now he’s a major signing .

        (ADMIN COMMENT – Be careful Dan!)

          1. To Jon Pat *
            Or does he have a special pass because he pretends to have football knowledge because he has an English degree.
            Let’s not forget he Bully’s half the JA posters and everyone of your article writers .
            I won’t be bullied or talked down to that’s for sure as you know
            And you do not need to give me a warning Pat like a school child if you do not want my feedback on this website just say and I’ll go else where .
            Not a problem

              1. (ADMIN COMMENT – I undrstand what you are saying, and if I’m online these comments are always deleted as soon as possible. Obviously – like TRVL – I won’t put up with it forever. So lets just move on for now, and try not to clog up the thread with insults from anyone, eh?)

  2. I don’t think other clubs and managers believe in the rumors……..sometimes big clubs wait for other club to put in a bid for a player to know what the selling club will except before putting their own bid….in Arsenal’s case no one will know the players they want to prevent other big clubs to go for the same players which will inflate the players price

  3. Let’s just hope Arsenal buy the right players,

    I believe Fabio Vieira would prove to be a good signing ,
