Arsenal and Newcastle set to go head-to-head for another Brazilian in summer window

Arsenal and Newcastle prepare to face another Brazilian in the summer window

Arsenal and Newcastle United may be ready to battle it out for another Brazilian player from Lyon this summer, with both clubs reportedly interested in midfield maestro Lucas Paqueta.

The ad video in which Newcastle announced the signing of Bruno Guimarães in January had them point to reports that the artillery had been keen on Guimarães, and that they had sent them to the position, although no official approach was believed to have been taken by Mikel Arteta and his cohorts. .

However, this time could be different, Arsenal need at least one player and possibly two midfielders this summer as they look to continue rebuilding under Arteta, and at 24 years old Lucas Paqueta could fit in with the youth standards set by the club in the summer. the past.

In the meantime, Newcastle are full of cash after being taken over by new ownership and, like Arsenal, are looking to build something special by targeting youngsters’ options.

According to reports from Tyneside, PSG have ditched their £58m price tag, leaving Premier League clubs free to play it.

It is understood that there is a asking price of £58m for Paqueta while wages can reach £180,000 a week. But with PSG now believing the overall package is too much, it could be due to a foot race for Paqueta between Newcastle and Arsenal, according to a Chronicle report.

Who is Lucas Paqueta?

Another one of the seemingly endless conveyor belt for Lyon’s midfield talent, Paqueta joined the Ligue 1 team in 2020 after a failed spell at AC Milan, having been bought by the Italian side for a hefty fee from mother Brazil.

From there, he rebuilds his career and has been a shining light in a disappointing campaign so far for the French team, playing in midfield but also leading the streak when necessary, returning 7 goals and 5 assists in 29 games in the best French run of the season.
