Manchester City is reportedly preparing to make a second bid for Lucas Paqueta in the transfer market.
The initial offer was rejected by West Ham, but City is determined to secure the Brazilian midfielder.
The need for additional midfield creativity has become more pressing for City after Kevin De Bruyne suffered a hamstring injury that may require surgery.
Personal terms with Paqueta have already been agreed upon, and City is hopeful that an improved bid will be successful.
Paqueta has been a key player for West Ham, contributing five goals and seven assists in 41 appearances.
