West Ham are close to completing the club record signing of Brazil international Lucas Paqueta from Lyon.

Our man-in-the-know ExWHUemployee first reported interest in the attacking midfielder back in early August, and now David Moyes is close to landing a huge coup for the club.

Ex has confirmed that a medical has been completed successfully and the player is currently undertaking media work ahead of the official announcement.

Updates on the progress of the deal will be provided by Ex on The West Ham Way Patreon.
