Arsenal set to pip Newcastle to the signing of Lucas Paqueta

Arsenal are reportedly set to pip Newcastle United to the signature of Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta this summer, according to a report.

The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move to the North-East outfit over recent months due to his friendship with Bruno Guimaraes.

The Magpies are said to have made a £34m move for Lucas Paqueta, but Media Foot are reporting that Arsenal are rivalling Newcastle for the 24-year-old’s signature.

The report adds that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is keen on the attacker and has proceeded with attempts to lure Paqueta to north London before the clubs begin negotiations over a transfer fee.

Paqueta is reportedly open to the idea of leaving the French outfit in the coming weeks, which would bring an end to his two-year spell in Ligue 1.

The Brazilian was part of Les Gones that finished down in eighth place in the Ligue 1 in the 2021-22 campaign.
