Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has revealed that a ‘source close to the negotiations’ is hopeful West Ham United will sign Lucas Paqueta.
The Hammers seem to have been keeping an eye on the midfielder throughout the summer, with transfer insider ExWHUemployee reporting in early August that a deal could be done if Lyon drop their asking price.
And, according to Sheth, personal details are not expected to be an issue for Paqueta and so hope remains over a possible deal.
Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Show, the journalist explained: (08:27): “I’m also told personal terms are not expected to be a problem with regard to Lucas Paqueta.
“And one source close to the negotiations has described the chances of this deal happening as ‘hopeful’. So ‘hopeful’ is the buzzword with regard to Lucas Paqueta.”
