Lyon have signed Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta from AC Milan on a five-year deal for a fee of €20m, the Ligue 1 club said.
Paqueta, 23, made 44 appearances for Milan in all competitions after joining from Flamengo in 2019.
"It's a very important signing. I was eager to show that we could make big signings and to be constructive in building the future of the club," Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas said in a statement.

Lucas had an impressive start to his career, he was a Brazilian international very early on. We want technical players but also ones who give 100% for the club.
"My time in Milan was an experience, it allowed me to grow. I am now focused on Lyon. The other Brazilians will help me but I intend to integrate myself alongside the others as well," Paqueta said.
