Midfielder Thierry Henry Likes Could Soon Join Arteta's Project: Talks Have Been Initiated

Some time back, Thierry Henry said this about Lucas Paqueta: "I like dribbling and blind passes, but what I like is his desire, his activity, his selflessness, his commitment. In general, this is not the case with all Brazilians."

So why am I reminding you of Henry's remarks about Paqueta? According to HITC, Arsenal's search for a reliable midfielder has led them to consider the Brazilian international as a transfer midfield option.

The Lyon man was a revelation in Ligue 1 last season, appearing in 33 games and scoring nine goals and assisting on six others. With Lyon finishing eighth in Ligue 1 last season, Paqueta is reportedly looking for a fresh start. According to HITC, Arsenal has held talks with Paqueta's entourage.

Lyon may demand at least £50 million to let him go. Is this a move Arsenal should pursue? If Arteta can get his hands on Paqueta, he will have a versatile midfielder who can cover all areas of the midfield. Going forward, versatility is essential, and Paqueta is one of the best midfielders Arsenal has been linked with.
