Hi Ed,

Any movement on potential ins Doku and Paqueta?

thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Jeremy Doku (RW) Bayern Munich turned their attention to him but have stepped back after being told an asking price by his agent that reflected Rennes paying over the odds for him - and Rennes do not consider him for sale. Aston Villa and Newcastle have a declared interest. West Ham have made clear they can give him playing time which he may not get elsewhere. Liverpool had an interest in Doku when he was at Anderlecht. It was suggested to Arsenal that he would be a good replacement if they can off-load Pepe or Manchester City to replace Mahrez but they have been looking at others aswell.

Lucas Paqueta (CM) There are issues and he may depart in the summer with Manchester City very keen. West Ham will look to exploit their interest to get the best fee possible and Manchester City are likely to go to £80M or thereabouts.}
