Liverpool having a close look at Raphinha preparing for a summer transfer

After an excellent debut season at Elland Road, the Brazilian winger caught the Reds’ attention.

Raphinha’s agent, Deco, confirmed that Liverpool expressed interest in buying the Leeds United winger during the summer transfer window.

Raphinha joined Leeds from Rennes for £17 million ($23 million) in October 2020, and he quickly established himself as a value signing, securing a regular role in Marcelo Bielsa’s starting XI. The winger’s outstanding performances helped the Whites finish ninth in the Premier League in their first season back in the top level, drawing interest from a number of big teams in the process.

Raphinha’s agent remarked, “Raphinha is pleased at Leeds and the time will come to take the biggest leap in her career, to take a step forward. He has a contract for three more years, but it is not the contract that determines the length of his stay or stops him from being transferred.
