Paqueta has been linked with a move away from Lyon on several occasions this summer, and the player himself is also keen to depart. However, the 24-year-old is only willing to head to the Premier League if he can secure a move to City or Spurs as he is not keen on other options, says L’Equipe.

The playmaker made 35 league appearances last season, scoring nine and registering six assists. His good form is believed to have captured the attention of Arsenal and Newcastle, who are both eager to continue improving their respective clubs in the latter stages of this summer’s transfer window.

But Paqueta is not keen on leaving Lyon in favour of a move to either side. The Gunners have been heavily linked with Paqueta over the past few seasons, and Mikel Arteta is keen to add depth to his midfield this summer following the arrival of Fabio Vieira from FC Porto. Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans has also been cited as a target.
