Lucas Paqueta

Paqueta Island, Brazil
Squad Number: 11
Position: Midfielder
Born: 27th Aug 1997 (Paqueta Island, Brazil)
Signed: 29th Aug 2022 (£36,770,000)
Contract: 5 years + 1 year option
Previous Club: Lyon

KUMB Awards: None.

The fee for the Brazilian international was confirmed by former club Lyon to be ?,?61.63million (??52.76million) which includes potential bonuses of ?,?18.68million (??16million), which are to be "spread over the player's five-year contract and which may accrue an additional incentive of 10% on any capital gain".

That means West Ham's initial payment for Paqueta was ?,?42.95million (??36.77million) - still below the ??45million paid to Eintracht Frankfurt for Sebastien Haller in 2019 but should all bonuses be paid, the club's record transfer fee by some considerable margin.

 

vs Everton

0-1: Sunday, 18th September
(Played 90 minutes)

A harsh five, but it was more due to his lack of real impact on events. He was neat with the ball, a 95% accuracy suggesting one misplaced pass, but there was no creativity, no incision, no influence.

vs Silkeborg

3-2: Thursday, 15th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Neat, tidy, smart with the ball. Nothing showy, nothing too impressive, but just assured.

vs FCSB

3-1: Thursday, 8th September
(Played 45 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Lanzini 46) Good ball for the penalty, controlled, worked hard.

vs Chelsea

1-2: Saturday, 3rd September
(Played 90 minutes)

Not so much jogo bonito here, it was actually his defensive work and battling in the middle that gets the plaudits, including some important defending in his own box in the second half. Doesn't look too flash or soft for Moyes and the Premier League, that's for sure. Promising early signs.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Wednesday, 31st August
(Played 23 minutes, sub)
