Leeds’ Raphinha has lit the Premier League on fire since his move to Elland Road in October with Liverpool now rumoured to be interested in signing the exciting forward.
Raphinha is a left-footed attacker who plays mainly on the right side of the front line as an inverted winger, much like Mohamed Salah.
He signed for Leeds just last October having spent one year at Stades Rennais in France’s Ligue 1. Raphinha has also played for Sporting Lisbon and Vitória Guimarães in Portugal.
Raphinha has made 14 league starts for Leeds this season, already contributing four goals and four assists for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
France Football reports that Raphinha is now top of Liverpool’s transfer wish-list for this summer. With The Reds having suffered immeasurably due to an unprecedented injury crisis this season, Jürgen Klopp and his backroom team are reportedly looking to strengthen the squad.
Raphinha is sure to continue to impress for Leeds between now and May. He is certainly a player worth watching and – if Leeds are willing to sell and if Raphinha decides on a move to Merseyside – he could well be the heir to Salah’s throne in a couple of years.
