By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta has given the green light regarding a move to Lyon, according to a report.

After a difficult 2019-20 campaign, a number of different sources have claimed that the Ligue 1 side are willing to offer Paqueta an escape route, with the Brazilian no longer part of the plans at Milan.

MilanNews reporter Anto Vitiello confirmed yesterday that there is constant dialogue ongoing with Lyon the for the sale of Paqueta, with work continuing to try and unlock the deal.

According to what SportMediaset are reporting (via MilanNews), the fact he was snubbed from the squad for last night’s match against Bodo/Glimt is a further sign that Paqueta’s future will be away from Milan.

The Brazilian has decided to accept a move to Lyon, and the Rossoneri are asking for €20-22m. The French club are willing to offer a loan with option to buy which could become an obligation in the event that Lyon should, for example, qualify for the Champions League.
