West Ham United have allegedly just made a new and improved offer for talented Lyon star Lucas Paqueta.

That’s according to a report from L’Equipe who claim that the Hammers have made a new offer for the 24-year-old Brazilian – this time worth €57 million (£48 million).

Paqueta would be a sensational signing for the Hammers and it seems as though the owners are trying their very best to bring the Brazilian to East London…

West Ham make improved Lucas Paqueta bid

L’Equipe claim that the Hammers have lodged a new £48 million bid for the 24-year-old.

The French club have apparently not yet responded to West Ham’s offer though.

The 33-capped Brazil international is an attacking midfielder by trade but he can also operate on either wing if need be.

The silky left-footed ace has bagged 20 goals and 13 assists in 77 games for Lyon so far. Last season, he racked up 11 goals and seven assists in 44 appearances for the French side (Transfermarkt).

Paqueta possesses exceptional technique, impressive pace and has a real eye for goal and a killer pass.

When Liverpool were linked with a move to sign him, Reds fan-site Read Liverpool described the South American star as ‘electrifying’.

He seems to have all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League and he has that nasty side on the football pitch that is so quintessentially South American as well.

We think that £48 million for Lucas Paqueta wouldn’t be bad value at all for West Ham. Hopefully Lyon accept the offer.

And with Lyon already preparing for his exit from the Groupama Stadium, it seems as though it might not be too long before we see the Brazilian holding up the West Ham shirt.
