Newcastle United: Robin Bairner drops significant Lucas Paqueta update

Newcastle United: Robin Bairner drops significant Lucas Paqueta update -Newcastle United News

Ligue 1 Journalist Robin Bairner has now revealed some significant Newcastle United transfer news on Lucas Paqueta, and it’s not the update fans may have been hoping for.

The Lowdown: Offer prepared?

With the summer transfer window officially opening today, it has been reported that the St. James’ Park outfit are preparing an offer to sign Paqueta.

Any deal would mirror that of the one that brought Bruno Guimaraes to the North East in January, as he too was a Brazilian midfielder who played for Lyon.

Of course, ‘Bruno’ has become an immediate fan favourite on Tyneside, and the fact he is such good friends with Paqueta is sure to endear his compatriot to the Toon Army immediately if a deal gets done.

The Latest: Hold your horses

Taking to Twitter, Bairner, who covers French football, has revealed that while the Tyneside club have been eyeing a move for Paqueta, there has been no concrete approach from them thus far:

“Newcastle have been linked but I’ve been told they haven’t made a concrete approach.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Time ticking

With the window officially open, time is now ticking for the Magpies if they want to get a deal for Paqueta done.

Other clubs are also thought to be interested in his signature, namely Arsenal, who can offer him the added incentive of European football next season.

Should Newcastle sign Paqueta?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Thus, the Toon may want to test the waters with Lyon in terms of making an official approach, and get an idea of how much he is going to cost.

Bairner has shared that it could cost as much as €60m (£51m) to sign the playmaker, which would end up breaking their transfer record after they signed Joelinton from Hoffenheim for a reported £40m back in 2019.
