​Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta set to consider Newcastle move at season's end

Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta is emerging as a target for Newcastle United.

The Magpies raided Lyon in January, securing midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

The central midfielder has been a revelation in the Premier League, helping Eddie Howe's side up the table in the past few months.

According to the Chronicle, Paqueta is not a big earner at Lyon, and may look to leave in the summer.

However, Arsenal and other clubs are also interested in his services.

One factor that may work in Newcastle's favour is Paqueta's friendship with Bruno Guimaraes.

The Brazilian recently stated that he would love to play with Paqueta again at club level.
