PSG to make mega bid for West Ham star


News stories in France are suggesting that PSG are about to make a mega bid for West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta. Last week Claret & Hugh broke the news that the Brazilian had changed agents and was interesting foreign clubs.

Paris Saint-Germain are reported as having a keen interest in the Hammers star. Whilst no figure has been mentioned, the oil rich club are willing to do whatever it takes to sign the player. That’s according to a recent report from L’Équipe, who claim the French giants, are keen on bolstering their squad ahead of next season.

Paqueta, 25, has been in impressive form for West Ham, showcasing his technical ability, vision, and versatility in midfield. He may have started his Hammers career slowly, but he was in tremendous form for the seasons climax. As a result many of Europe’s top clubs have taken notice and cast envious glances towards East London.

A mega bid for West Ham star Lucas Paqueta is expected from PSG

However, West Ham will likely be reluctant to part ways with their prized asset. The Brazilian playmaker has quickly become a vital cog in Moyes’s midfield, playing a pivotal role in their recent success, including providing the assist for Jarrod Bowen’s Europa League Conference goal earlier this month.

In truth there are not too many clubs in the world who could afford Paqueta. Serie A are not paying extortionate transfer fees and even the Spanish giants are having to cut their cloth. The Premier League is awash with so much money that it’s hard for the continental clubs to compete. But PSG are a different proposition entirely.

If the Qatari owned club decide they want Paqueta, there is very little West Ham can do about it.

    Sad day for the club and a huge set back in terms of ambitions if we allow him to leave after one season. In many ways I would prefer Paqueta stays instead of Rice perhaps that’s just from a football philosophy. I keep going back to it, we should have sacked Moyes as he won’t change from his defensive mindset, if we had replaced Moyes with a top coach that plays football with an offensive philosophy the risk of losing Paqueta wud be reduced imo. Paqueta has been a terrific signing.

      Yes, you keep going back to it like scratched record, one of the best managers we have had! His stats prove that yet you still go on.

  • Pessimist says:

    How good would Moyes stats look ,if it wasn’t for the fact that we were lucky enough not to meet a Roma in the European Conference League . Moyes does not know how to run a Premier League Club beyond one formation. Moyes was is and continues to be a waste of space.

  • Pessimist says:

    In addition Paqueta is a really good Player, but if PSG want to pay mad money he can be replaced.

  • johnham1 says:

    A manager who very nearly relegated us with his negativity, a manager whose team were outplayed in the european final, whose team had 33% possession 60 mins into game and just 105 passes completed, a manager who did everything possible to make it as hard for us to win that final, the players won that final. Our performances and results have have been for the most part awful for the past 18 months. I would like to see what stats you are talking about for the last 18 months ?

    As much as I rarely agree with you Johnham, I do agree the style and quality of the football since the beginning of 2022 has been disappointing,

    However, who was in charge the previous 2 years as the fortunes of West Ham were turned around?
    Finishing back-to-back in European qualifications and winning a Euro Trophy?

    Is Moyes the perfect manager? Is he as good as Pep? Probably not, but he’s delivered more than any predecessor since Ron Greenwood.

  • Limey says:

    As far as Paquetta is concerned, of course he can go to PSG for the right price.
    How much would make it worthwhile?
