Lucas Paqueta is already thinking of Newcastle United and is impressed by his supporters ahead of a potential summer move.
Newcastle will be associated with every player under the sun this summer as agents scramble to get a slice of the PIF pie.
A rumor that seems to carry some weight surrounds Paqueta.
The Lyon playmaker has been linked with Newcastle for some time and The Chronicle claim the Magpies are in the mood for a £58m swoop.
The same report suggested Arsenal also want Paqueta, but it looks like Newcastle are at the front of the queue.
Lucas Paqueta is already thinking about Newcastle
Paqueta is a close friend of Newcastle star Bruno Guimaraes – who joined the Magpies from Lyon in January.
The idea appears to be for the couple to reunite on Tyneside and Guimaraes has admitted he would love such a deal.
Paqueta then visited Newcastle a few days ago and posed for photos with Guimaraes.
Paqueta was only in Tyneside to celebrate Guimaraes’ girlfriend’s birthday, but the couple were there then was spotted at a kickabout in Newcastle.
The playmaker returned to France but was left on the bench in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Clermont Foot.
Paqueta wasn’t even brought. Maybe Peter Bosz just wanted to do something different for the last game of the season, but no sight of Paqueta was interesting.
The Chronicle now proposes that Paqueta is “already thinking about Newcastle” and loving what he’s seen of the Magpies fan base.
Paqueta has reportedly attended a number of Newcastle games this season, mainly to watch Guimaraes of course.
However, now that he’s spending so much time watching Newcastle, he seems interested in joining the club.
Lyon are set to demand a huge fee this summer after 11 goals and seven assists this season, but Paqueta’s Newcastle speculation seems like a runaway train with no sign of slowing down.
