After a spectacular breakthrough season in the Premier League, Liverpool are reportedly planning to make an offer for Leeds United forward Raphinha.
Liverpool are set to make a ‘first official offer’ to Leeds United for Raphinha worth €37 million (£32 million), according to Mercado Ingles, after he impressed in the Premier League this season.
This season, the Peacocks’ lightning-quick Brazilian forward scored eight goals and provided 11 assists, guiding them to a ninth-place finish in their first season back in the Premier League.
Apart from the fact that he is someone who is appreciated by the Liverpool coaching staff, there isn’t much else to Mercado Ingles’ information, and Anfield Central hasn’t heard anything about interest in the forward.
Raphinha would be an excellent back-up option for Mohamed Salah, but his lack of adaptability means that unless the Egyptian is used as a striker, Raphinha will be forced to play as his back up.
