Lucas Paqueta is one of the most promising strikers after Mbappe and Lewandowski in recent times. At least statistics will stand for him.
What is his current performance saying: Paqueta has scored 9 goals and also has made 6 assists so far. Of this 7 of his goals and 5 assists have come in the French league.
The Rio de Janeiro native Lucas Paqueta has been in brilliant form for the ‘Selecao’ also. A few months ago, in Qatar world cup qualifiers he also scored a few goals for Brazil that had helped them to win two matches in a row and to remain in the number 1 spot of Conmebol World Cup qualifiers.
Paqueta is just 24 years old and his football career is yet to flourish. Currently, he has been playing for French club Lyon and a potential transfer move can bring him a big opportunity to play in the world no 1 English Premier League.
But it will not be easy for any other clubs to land him. Arsenal are one of them and they are waiting eagerly for this transfer. But Lyon has announced that it will cost approx 70 million euros. Paris Saint-German are also interested in the move but they are not likely to pay this huge money for him. If done so Neymar-: Paqueta partnership will be a cherishable duo in league 1.
He has a contract till 2025 with Lyon. But Arsenal knows what he can do. In the Europa League, Lyon will face West Ham in the next week and the gunners will undoubtedly be watching him. Meanwhile according to Clinton Morrison, “Paqueta is a big talent and he could easily come and play in the premier league.”
