A £52 million bid may be made for Lucas Paqueta by Newcastle in January

IKEJA, Nigeria - Sept. 18, 2023 - PRLog -- Lucas Tolentino Coelho de Lima, better known as Lucas Paquetá, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Premier League club West Ham United and the Brazil national team. Newcastle is reportedly considering a £52m swoop for West Ham's Brazilian star Lucas Paqueta in January.

The Brazil international has shone in his time at the London Stadium, but his future looked in some doubt over the summer as both Manchester City and Newcastle looked at him. Lucas Paqueta was looked at by Newcastle in May, according to Romano in today's Substack column, but it seems they then made Tonali their priority, bringing in the Italy international from AC Milan in one of their most high-profile deals of the summer.

One imagines Paqueta will still be one to watch, though Romano is not currently aware of anything concrete going on there, as City also signed an alternative in midfield by bringing in Matheus Nunes from Wolves.

Discussing the Paqueta saga, Romano said: "Another deal that nearly happened this summer was Lucas Paqueta, who was targeted by Manchester City. "Of course, clubs are now waiting to see the end of the investigation story. Newcastle was also interested back in May, but then they never sent proposals as their focus was on Sandro Tonali. "Manchester City always appreciated Paqueta but they invested money on Matheus Nunes, big money; so, at the moment they're not planning for that move in January."
