Arsenal set to sign Raphinha from Leeds in £50m deal

Arsenal are set to make a £50million bid for Leeds winger, Raphinha, according to the UK Times.

The Gunners are ready to fight off Barcelona and rivals, Tottenham Hotspur to sign the Brazil international.

Barca had been heavily linked with a move for Raphinha, but that deal now looks unlikely to happen.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has been very impressed by the player’s performances for Leeds, netting eleven goals and providing three assists in the Premier League last season.

If he joins Arsenal, then it could see Bukayo Saka switch to the left flank, with Nicolas Pepe a candidate to leave the club.

Raphinha has progressed well since joining Leeds from Rennes in 2020. He was previously at Sporting Lisbon and Vitoria.
