With Paqueta’s signing Arsenal Football Club receives a major boost
Bruno Cheyrou, the head of Lyon, has acknowledged that Lucas Paqueta may depart, which has greatly aided Arsenal’s consideration of a bid for the midfielder.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Gabriel Jesus, and Fabio Vieira have all arrived from Manchester City, while Fabio Vieira came from Porto.

Cheyrou has now encouraged the Premier League team that a deal can be reached.
At a news conference, he stated:
“We must minimize the size of the squad.
“With regard to departures, we will evaluate offers on an individual basis, but the economics will be taken into account. To make the best choices, Jean-Michel Aulas and Vincent Ponsot and I will discuss the offers.
I’m here to put up the best squad I can, but there are other considerations as well.
He noted that Paqueta in particular:
“We are ready for any situation,”
In 42 games last season, the 24-year-old scored 10 goals and provided seven assists.
