Newcastle United note book: Lucas Paqueta's d-day, Saint-Maximin future and Jeff Hendrick return

Newcastle United owners don't need to be told again that the arrival of Lucas Paqueta would have fans partying in the streets of the Toon this summer.

However, despite a further recommendation from Bruno Guimaraes no less, who says the Brazil ace would be his dream signing at United

Newcastle already have a well trodden path when it comes to dealing with the Ligue 1 club after the £33.5million signing of Bruno.

Lyon still have an outside chance of European football next season but currently sit in eighth spot.

And sources in France are indicating Paqueta has given Lyon manager Peter Bosz his word he will make a decision at the end of the season.

Newcastle are in with a great shout of signing Paqueta as he is not one of Lyon's big earners, picking up just £50,000 per week, 

But as reported on Chronicle Live recently Arsenal are very much in the hunt for his services too.
