Speculation regarding Raphinha’s future with Leeds United has been under high scrutiny in recent times. The player who plays as a winger is said to be one of the players targeted by FC Barcelona. But the financial crisis became an obstacle for Barca to bring him.
Barca still have to reduce salary spending significantly. The club based at Camp Nou continues to try to release players, ranging from players who are not included in the plan to key players. The Blaugrana have also not been able to complete the recruitment of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie on a free transfer due to this problem.
The Athletic are now reporting that this situation opens up opportunities for Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The two North London clubs have an interest in signing Raphinha from Leeds United. Leeds is claimed to have set a price of 60 to 70 million pounds.
Leeds are ready to release Raphinha because they understand the ambitions of the Brazilian player. Raphinha wants to play for a club of higher position and potential at the peak of his career.
Apart from Arsenal and Tottenham, Chelsea is believed to also have an interest in Raphinha. But the Blues are also trying to sign Ousmane Dembele, who has entered the end of his contract with Barcelona.
