Declan Rice is expected to depart West Ham during the 2023 summer transfer window.
The Englishman has been heavily linked with an Arsenal switch in recent months, as well as to Manchester United and Chelsea.
Now though, it appears the Gunners are also in the market for a second Hammers midfielder.
According to reports, Arsenal are plotting a move to sign West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta despite him only joining the club last summer.
Fichajes have claimed that Arsenal and Newcastle are considering making a move for Paqueta during the summer transfer window.
No potential fee is mentioned in the report, but a hefty sum will likely be needed to allow West Ham to part with the Brazilian.
Paqueta signed for West Ham during the 2022 summer transfer window from Lyon and it has taken him some time to settle in England.
The 25-year-old has started 15 games in the Premier League this season, contributing just two goals and two assists.
