Olympique Lyonnais will make its very big sale of the summer: West Ham accepted this Friday afternoon the last conditions of the Rhone leaders, which only concerned details, to buy Lucas Paqueta. As revealed Thursday evening on the L’Équipe website, the two clubs had already agreed on almost everything and the transfer was no longer in doubt.
The Brazilian, recruited by Juninho in Lyon for 20 M€ two years ago from AC Milan, will bring in just over 60 M€ for his club, bonus included. OL will also keep a small percentage on a possible future sale of the player. The midfielder is due for his medical on Saturday morning in London, on his 25th birthday. He will commit for 5 years with the Hammers, and will therefore not play with OL in Reims, Sunday (5:05 p.m.).
