Olympique Lyonnais have announced via their website the official signing of AC Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta on a permanent deal. The 23 year old midfielder had fallen out of favour under manager Stefano Pioli which led to his exclusion from the squad despite and injury/illness crisis. The Brazil international was purchased in the winter transfer window in early 2019 by then director Leonardo but did not live up to the hype struggling to adjust to changing managers and struggling to carve out his space in the squad.
