Raphinha wanted by several Premier League clubs
The fast and furious start to the summer transfer window looks set to continue as a host of Premier Clubs are reportedly interested in capturing Leeds winger Raphinha.
It has long been expected that Raphinha could be on the move this summer with the Brazilian attracting real interest from Spanish giants Barcelona. Barcelona’s interest has cooled and there is a belief that the Catalan club simply doesn’t have the financial flexibility to get the transfer done.
Barcelona’s difficulties have alerted Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea who all see the tricky forward as an ideal option for their squads.
It’s unknown how much it will cost to prize the Brazilian away from Elland Road but some reports indicate the fee wanted by Leeds could be as high as £55 million.
Out of the three clubs linked to Raphinha it’s Tottenham who have been the most active in the transfer market, but a move for the Brazilian isn’t set to be top of their radar. Arsenal on the other hand are in desperate need of more attacking firepower following the departures of both Alexandre Lacazzette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
With Leeds not wanting to sell one of their best players, it will be interesting to see how quickly a deal can be done.
