Leeds United are closing in on a deal for Feyenoord forward Luis Sinisterra as a replacement for the outbound Raphinha, with a deal for USMNT midfielder Tyler Adams also being worked on.

Brazilian forward Raphinha is certain to leave, though where to remains unclear as of now, with Barcelona and Chelsea fighting it out in a £60m deal for the Leeds United winger, and those at Elland Road are clearly planning for a future without him.

The 23-year-old grabbed 23 goals and 14 assists across 49 appearances in all competitions, and should he depart, is likely to net the Dutch side a record sale.
