Lyon weigh up €22m move for AC Milan’s Lucas Paqueta

Lyon are keen on AC Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta and are considering a €22m bid for him, Gazzetta dello Sport reveals.

The 23-year-old cost Milan in the region of €35m to sign from Flamengo, but has failed to impress.

With Milan bringing in Ciprian Tatarusanu from Lyon, after Samuel Kalulu earlier in the summer, the two clubs have a good relationship.

Paqueta has appeared in 44 games for Milan, scoring one and assisting three goals.

He remains a promising talent and has been capped 11 times by the Brazilian national team.

But with Sandro Tonali joining from Brescia and another central midfielder lined up, Milan want to balance the books.

Nothing is advanced yet, but there is serious interest from Lyon for Paqueta, who Milan value between €20m and €25m.

Meanwhile, another of Milan’s expendable midfielders, Rade Krunic, could be joining Freiburg.

The Bundesliga side are reportedly willing to pay €8m for the Bosnian international, who they have been trailing since August.
