MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta could leave the club this summer after a difficult first complete season with the club. The Brazil international struggled to break into the starting line up all season as he has been used in a flurry of position including CM, CAM and RAM. The midfielder only managed 12 starts in the league all season but only 4 starts came in the second half of the season. As a result the report suggest that Paqueta is effectively on the transfer market. The Rossoneri will reportedly accept an offer of about 25 million euros for the midfielder.

The midfielder arrived in the winter transfer window of the 2018/19 season for about 38 million euros but his value has significantly dropped since. PSG were interested in bringing him to France last summer and last winter but only offered a maximum of 25 million euros which was turned down at the time. Fiorentina have expressed strong interest in him and Milan are looking to include him in a swap deal for centre back Nikola Milenkovic. In his season and a half with the club, he has scored 1 goal and provided 3 assists in 44 appearances.
