Manchester City is reportedly in discussions with West Ham United to sign midfielder Lucas Paqueta in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Journalist Rudy Galetti shared on his official X account that the two clubs are currently negotiating the potential transfer fee, while Paqueta is keen to join Manchester City, with no issues expected regarding personal terms.

The Brazilian midfielder, who joined West Ham from Lyon in 2022 for a transfer fee of £51 million, has made a significant impact since his arrival in the Premier League. Over the course of 79 appearances for West Ham across all competitions, Paqueta has scored 13 goals and provided 14 assists.

This season, Paqueta has been one of West Ham’s standout players, contributing more passes into the penalty area (45) and goal-creating actions (15) than any other player on the team. He has also excelled defensively, ranking second in successful tackles (43) and recoveries (170) for the Hammers.

Paqueta’s overall performance has earned him a season rating of 7.16/10 from WhoScored, making him the second-highest-rated player at West Ham. His ability on and off the ball has earned him praise from West Ham manager David Moyes, who described him as a “special” player.

If Manchester City successfully signs Paqueta, he could be a top addition to Pep Guardiola’s squad, providing versatility and technical skill in the midfield. His arrival would strengthen the team as they aim for further success in both domestic and European competitions.
