Opinion: Arsenal will get revenge on Newcastle if they sign Lucas Paqueta

According to Media Foot in France, Arsenal are trying to sign Newcastle target Lucas Paqueta this summer.

The Magpies have been heavily linked with Paqueta all summer, as fans dream of seeing him and Bruno Guimaraes together at St James’ Park.

The duo formed a wonderful friendship at Lyon, but that was split up when Bruno joined Newcastle.

There has been speculation that Paqueta could follow him to Tyneside. The Times even claimed that Newcastle could offer £50million and make him the club’s most expensive ever signing.

However, it looks like the 24-year-old won’t be coming to the North East. But he could still move to the Premier League.

Arsenal want to sign Lucas Paqueta

Now Arsenal are looking to sign the Brazil international. Media Foot claim that they are pushing to convince him to come to the Emirates. They add that he could be interested in a move.

The 24-year-old is an exceptional footballer, and would no doubt be very welcome in North London. They’re looking to do even better this upcoming season, having narrowly missed out on Champions League football last time out.

Newcastle played their part in that, beating Mikel Arteta’s side 2-0 back in May. That was the game that cost Arsenal, and it was a night to forget for the Gunners.

Arsenal would get revenge on Newcastle for Bruno taunting

Newcastle battered Arsenal that night, while Bruno Guimaraes put in a midfield masterclass.

Toon fans spent the night drooling over the midfielder, and rubbing it in the faces of Arsenal fans. There were constant chants about Bruno. ‘He turned you down’, ‘he could’ve signed for Arsenal…’ etc.

The 24-year-old was heavily linked with Arsenal before joining Newcastle, and even held talks with them. But he moved to St James’ Park, and is already a Toon hero.

Newcastle fans are always mocking Arsenal about Bruno, but they would get their revenge if Paqueta moved to the Emirates.

They would have signed the player Toon supporters are dreaming of. He’s the one player that a lot of fans want to sign. They’re desperate to see him and Bruno link up at Newcastle.

That probably won’t happen, with Eddie Howe’s transfer priorities lying elsewhere. That could open the door for Arsenal to swoop in, and their fans would love to get one over on us after all the Bruno taunting.
