There are no official negotiations between Lyon and AC Milan over playmaker Lucas Paqueta at present, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

It was reported last night by Daniele Longo of that Lyon consider Paqueta one of their priorities this transfer window. The Ligue 1 side have been following the 23-year-old for quite some time and their sporting director Juninho is a big fan.

The Brazilian has not been called up for the Europa League match against Shamrock Rovers which has been confirmed as a technical choice by Pioli, showing Paqueta’s days at the club are seemingly numbered.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio for Sky Italia (via MilanLive), there has been an expression of interest from Lyon , but the French have not yet taken steps forward to formulate an official offer.

Milan are waiting to receive funds from Paqueta’s sale before going all-out to sign a defender. Lyon wants to sell first, and the main suspect is Aouar, destined for Arsenal.
