The Premier League giants Liverpool target Lucas Paqueta has appeared as a transfer target for both Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports from France and Italy.
The French outlet Le10Sport, as quoted on football news Italian website Calciomercato, reports that both clubs are interested in signing the player, who is valued at around £45 million by the Brazilian club Flamengo.
Paqueta has previously been connected with moves to Chelsea and Liverpool, with suggestions that the west London giants were preparing a huge-money bid for the Brazilian.
The young attacker looks set to be the next Brazilian player to make his way over to Europe after starring in Brazil.
Lucas is a creative and skilful midfielder who is earning rave reviews back in his native country and it appears that his displays are not going unnoticed.
The playmaker is said to have a £45 million release (buy-out) clause in his current contract, but it is yet to be seen if any European heavyweights will splash the cash on such an unknown talent.
This term, Lucas Paqueta has made 28 appearances, scored 6 goals and provided 4 assists.
