Mercato – OL: So close to Arsenal, Paqueta finds himself at Tottenham

Will stay, won’t stay? This is the question that all OL supporters are asking about the future of Lucas Paqueta. However, for his part, the midfielder has already decided on his new destination.

Flagship player of Olympique Lyonnais and dazzling at the start of the season, Lucas Paqueta has since lost some of his luster. Nevertheless, the attacking midfielder keeps a good rating in Europe, and in particular, in England, on the side of the Premier League. Several major European teams are interested in his profile, versatile, altruistic while being physically present. Recently, there was talk of seeing him join the ranks of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but the English press and in particular the HITC media confirms it, it is at Tottenham that he could land.

Paqueta ready to do anything to join Conte?

After a turbulent season, Tottenham managed to qualify for the Champions League. Surely a data that allowed the club to achieve a very encouraging summer transfer window (Richarlison, Lenglet, Bissouma, Perisic). But the English club does not want to stop there and wants to arm itself as best as possible to overthrow rivals City and Liverpool. And to achieve that, Antonio Conte believes Lucas Paqueta can be Spurs’ metronome.

Arsenal demoted by Paqueta

If for a time, Arsenal had a head start, the former AC Milan player is seduced by the quality of management of Antonio Conte and wishes to evolve under the orders of the Italian technician. A real slap for the Gunners, who for a long time thought they had the favor of the former AC Milan. A sum of 35 million euros is mentioned in the media. The 24-year-old is now waiting to find out if this is enough in the eyes of Jean-Michel Aulas, who was considering instead agreeing to let go of one of his best players for a sum of around 60 million euros. President Levy will have to go to the checkout if he really wants to afford the services of the Brazilian international.
