Newcastle United: Magpies ‘preparing an offer’ for Lucas Paqueta

Newcastle United: Magpies ‘preparing an offer’ for Lucas Paqueta -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now ‘preparing an offer’ to sign Lucas Paqueta this summer.

The Lowdown: Shades of Bruno

A deal to bring Paqueta to St. James’ Park would certainly draw comparisons to when Bruno Guimaraes arrived in the North East in the January transfer window.

Paqueta is also a silky Brazilian midfielder who plays for Bruno’s old club Lyon in Ligue 1, and he is even thought to be a ‘good friend‘ of the now Toon fan favourite.

The Latest: Paqueta offer

Taking to Twitter, transfer insider Rudy Galetti has revealed that the Tyneside outfit are now ‘preparing an offer’ for Paqueta, and talks over personal terms are ‘at a good stage’:

“#Newcastle are preparing an offer to #OL for Lucas #Paquetá. The English club would like to buy at least one top player and the Brazilian is among the favourites.  

“Personal terms under discussion, at a good stage: rapidly evolving situation.”

Should Newcastle sign Paqueta?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Verdict: No-brainer

Given the instant impact that Bruno has had on Eddie Howe’s side, scoring five goals and making one assist in the Premier League and ranking as their third-best performer in the division (WhoScored), it is surely a no-brainer to link him up with his old teammate in Paqueta.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

The 24-year-old has managed an impressive 11 goals and seven assists from midfield in all competitions this season (Transfermarkt), and the prospect of him playing in a midfield with fellow Brazilians Bruno and Joelinton is a truly mouth-watering concept for the Toon Army.

Nonetheless, signing Paqueta should encourage other top players to follow him to the Magpies, which would really help kickstart the long-term project.
