Man City are thought to have had a bid worth up to £95million rejected by the Hammers.

Despite this, according to France Télévisions, Paqueta, 26, has agreed personal terms with Man City.

The report also claims that West Ham are holding out for £110m if they are to sell another star player this summer.

The club have already lost captain Declan Rice during the transfer window as he joined Arsenal for £105m.

Hammers boss David Moyes was asked about Man City’s interest in Paqueta during his press conference ahead of the Premier League season kick off.

Moyes admitted that there had been an offer but it was “not anywhere near” the club’s price tag.

He said: “We’ve had an offer from Manchester City, but at the moment, it’s not anywhere near meeting our valuation.”

It is believed that Paqueta is keen on a move to the Etihad despite only arriving at the London Stadium last summer from Lyon.

While in Pep Guardiola‘s presser, the City manager gave a very blunt answer when asked about the club’s interest in the Brazilian.

He said: “I will answer about Kyle Walker but not about Paqueta because he is a West Ham player.”

West Ham have only signed one player this summer as Edson Alvarez joined from Ajax to replace Rice.

The club is also close to completing the deals to sign James Ward-Prowse and Harry Maguire.

However, should Paqueta leave, it would hand a major blow to Moyes and the team as it would create another big hole in the team that would need replacing.
