Lyon in for Paqueta?

Lyon links with Paqueta grow

As reports grow of Lyon interest in Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta, President Jean-Michel Aulas declares it ‘fake news.’

The rumours started in Italy and have now spread to France, specifically L’Equipe, with suggestions of talks for a €27m deal.

Paqueta is on the transfer market, having failed to make an impact since his January 2019 move from Flamengo at a cost of €38m plus bonuses.

However, just as the stories were increasing in intensity, Lyon President Aulas took to Twitter in order to shoot them down.

Lyon option for Paqueta

Milan are struggling to find buyers for Lucas Paqueta, but Olympique Lyonnais have shown an interest and possible €23m bid.

The Brazilian midfielder cost €38.4m plus bonuses to purchase from Flamengo in January 2019, but has failed to live up to expectations.

He has just one goal and three assists in 44 competitive games for the Diavolo.

Under contract until June 2023, the Rossoneri want to sell so they can fund other transfer deals, such as Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea or Boubakary Soumare of Lille.

Paqueta impressive in Milan friendly

Milan fought back from 2-0 down to beat Novara 4-2 in their first pre-season friendly, with Lucas Paqueta’s brace, Diego Laxalt and Davide Calabria goals.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was in the starting XI of Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 formation, although clearly there were none of the players currently away on international duty.

It was a game split into three 20-minute periods, as they only just started training.

Paqueta-Milenkovic swap rejected

Fiorentina turned down a straight swap between Nikola Milenkovic and Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta, claim reports, demanding €40m cash instead.

According to the Corriere della Sera newspaper, the offer was made by the Rossoneri, hoping to make the most of January attempts to sign Paqueta.

However, the Viola were unimpressed, have since turned to other targets and don’t believe Paqueta is worth the same as Milenkovic.

Instead, they are requesting €40m in cash, which can then be used to sign a suitable replacement in defence.

Report: Fiorentina want €40m for Milenkovic

Milan continue to chase Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic this summer, but the Viola reportedly ask for €40m.

Tuttosport claims the only thing stopping Milan from making a concrete move for the Serbian is the high price tag set by Fiorentina.

The Rossoneri coach Stefano Pioli knows the 22-year-old defender from his time at the club and would love to bring Milenkovic to San Siro this summer.

Paqueta-Milenkovic exchange suggested

Milan and Fiorentina are reportedly negotiating an exchange of loans with option to buy between Lucas Paqueta and Nikola Milenkovic.

The Brazilian midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at San Siro and is not part of coach Stefano Pioli’s plans for the future.

Making back the €38m plus bonuses spent to sign Paqueta from Flamengo in January 2019 is impossible right now.

The idea, according to Sport Mediaset, is therefore to send him out for regular playing time at Fiorentina.
