Sportitalia: Lyon show interest in signing Milan midfielder Paqueta – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

Ligue 1 side Lyon have expressed an interest in signing AC Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta, according to a report.

After a difficult season, it has been speculated that the Brazil international could depart a year and a half after his arrival from Flamengo. The problem is though that Milan must sell for at least €25million to avoid a capital loss on the balance sheet.

There have been rumours that his future is away from the club, but he put that to one side on Wednesday evening, scoring twice to lead a comeback against Novara.

According to Gianluigi Longari of Sportitalia, Lyon are now looking for a player with quality and technical ability for their midfield department, and Paqueta is one of the names being considered.

The Brazilian remains an idea for now with no official bids or offers having been made, but it is good news for Milan who may soon have a dilemma on their hands.
