With Newcastle having now secured their Premier League survival, attention will quickly turn to the summer transfer window and who Newcastle will look to recruit in a bid to take the club to the next level.
Newcastle who are now one of the richest clubs in the world will be an attractive proposition to a host of players all over the world and one player who is reportedly on Newcastle’s radar is Lyon forward Lucas Paqueta.
Newcastle were heavily linked to Paqueta in the January transfer window, but couldn’t agree on a fee with Lyon.
Paqueta could be available for a fee in the £50 million region. A talented forward, Paqueta has scored ten times for Lyon this season.
Paqueta has a great relationship with Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimeraes who left Lyon in January. Fans of Newcastle would be hoping that the two can be reunited this summer and help fire Newcastle up the table.
