After contributing to the beautiful Copa America of Brazil this summer, Lucas Paqueta made a thunderous start to the season at Olympique Lyonnais.
Scorer against Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday night, the Brazilian international illuminated the Parc des Princes. Present in the typical team for the sixth day of Ligue 1 according to L’Equipe despite OL’s defeat against PSG, Lucas Paqueta is slowly but surely establishing himself as one of the best players in our championship. And quite logically, the services of the native of Rio de Janeiro attract attention in the perspective of the next transfer window. This is how according to the information obtained by the site Fichajes.net, FC Barcelona is following the performances of Lucas Paqueta with great attention.

Paqueta with De Jong and Pedri
The Blaugrana leaders, who unfortunately have more ideas than financial means, already imagine Paqueta to strengthen the Barça midfielder alongside Frenkie De Jong and Pedri. For the moment, there is obviously no question of an offer or making contact with Olympique Lyonnais, but simply of an interest on the part of FC Barcelona. It remains to be seen whether in the coming weeks, Lucas Paqueta will continue his momentum or not. If this is the case, then there is no doubt that FC Barcelona will think very seriously about making an offer to the Lyon leaders for Lucas Paqueta, recruited for 20 million euros from AC Milan a year ago.

What is certain is that the immense talent of Lucas Paqueta is no longer debated. At the microphone of Prime Video on Sunday evening, Thierry Henry, for example, was very laudatory towards the number ten of Olympique Lyonnais, even if it means making crates and repeating himself at half-time and then at the end of the match at the edge of the lawn. “He did everything, I rarely saw a n ° 10 who recovered as many balls in the feet of the opponent as he did against Paris SG” notably launched the former striker of the French team, FC Barcelona and Arsenal. Compliments which prove the new dimension of Lucas Paqueta, more than ever OL’s number one offensive asset this season.
