Arsenal’s offensive problems have been solved by the signing of Gabriel Jesus. But the team is still looking for another wide attacker. The team is busy finding alternatives for Raphinha and is still looking for a new midfielder.
In a new contract, Martin Odegaard will have enough support from Fabio Vieira. But the former star of Porto could also play in a deeper midfield position. But Mikel Arteta is looking for a good option to play on the left side of the midfield. Youri Tielemans is their main target.
The Gunners have been putting off making an offer for the international player from Belgium. But now that stories are coming out about Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta, a move for Tielemans might not happen. Arsenal has been keeping an eye on the 24-year-old Brazilian star since January. The club will try to find out if he is available during this window. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]
Premier League teams are very interested in Paqueta. Arsenal is looking into the possibility of signing him. Arteta wants to be sure that the player wants to be a part of his project before Arsenal makes a firm offer.
Lyon is sure that Paqueta wants to stay at the club because he is a key part of their plan. But if the Brazilian wants to leave the team, the French giants are willing to listen to bids. The midfielder seems to like what Arteta has to say about the future. So, he may agree to move. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]
Will Paqueta move to the Emirates?
Lyon will want more than €50 million. This could make Arsenal think twice about making an offer. The Brazilian is under contract until 2025. But he is much more expensive than Tielemans. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]
The French team isn’t sure if Arsenal could really afford Paqueta during this transfer window. The Gunners have shown that they are good at signing players. But it’s not clear if they can pay a high price for the Brazilian midfielder. But right now, Arsenal wants to sign Paqueta and is ready to make a move, but only if they know for sure that the player wants to move.
The report says that Paqueta would cost around €50 million and would be a versatile midfielder. During his time at Lyon, Paqueta played in deep midfield, just behind the striker, on the wing, and even up front. With the addition of five substitutes next season, he could be a useful member of the squad. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]
