Arsenal snubbed by Paqueta as star ‘prefers’ two Premier League rivals | Football | Sport


Paqueta has been linked with a move away from Lyon on several occasions this summer, and the player himself can also be keen to depart. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old is just willing to go to the Premier League if he can secure a move to City or Spurs as he will not be keen on other options, says L’Equipe.

The playmaker made 35 league appearances last season, scoring nine and registering six assists. His good form is believed to have captured the eye of Arsenal and Newcastle, who’re each wanting to proceed improving their respective clubs within the latter stages of this summer’s transfer window.

But Paqueta will not be keen on leaving Lyon in favour of a move to either side. The Gunners have been heavily linked with Paqueta over the past few seasons, and Mikel Arteta is keen so as to add depth to his midfield this summer following the arrival of Fabio Vieira from FC Porto. Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans has also been cited as a goal.
