Lyon have loan with €18m option to buy bid for Lucas Paqueta rejected

L’Équipe report that Lyon have begun to make moves to prepare for the possible departure of Houssem Aouar to Arsenal and last week offered AC Milan a loan with €18m option to buy deal for 23-year-old attacking midfielder Lucas Paqueta.

The Italian side rejected the offer, but OL are likely to return in the coming hours with a new offer that is still a loan with option to buy, but the option is of a higher amount.

Milan want the option to be obligatory, but sources tell Get French Football News that not enough major actors at board level believe in Paqueta’s abilities to the point that they would be willing to be obliged to buy him. This target is being pushed heavily by Sporting Director Juninho.
