Liverpool linked with Leeds winger Raphinha

Raphinha’s Leeds stint

Raphinha joined Leeds United during the delayed summer window last year.

The Yorkshire outfit are believed to have paid Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais around £16m to bring the Brazilian to Elland Road.

And the former Sporting man has since gone on to enjoy a fine start to life with Leeds.

In 16 Premier League outings so far, the right-winger has been able to score four goals and provide four assists.

With so much of the spotlight having centered on how well Leeds’ club-record signing Rodrigo would fare ahead of the season getting underway, Raphinha’s impressive displays, in turn, have gone slightly under the radar.

A case could certainly be made, though, that the Brazilian has been much more effective for the Whites to this point.

Liverpool linked with Raphinha

In fact, so impressive has Raphinha looked over the campaign to date, that the attacker has now seemingly piqued the interest of one of Europe’s top clubs.

As per a report from Football Insider, Liverpool are keeping tabs on the 24-year-old, following his excellent start to life in England.

Little more information is provided regarding a potential deal, though it is added that the Reds are assessing potential attacking options for next season ahead of the summer window.

Liverpool, of course, signed both Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino during recent windows, to provide backup to their already established front-three.

But the latter of that duo has since joined Southampton on loan, on the back of an underwhelming start to life at Anfield.

So, if Liverpool were to land Raphinha this summer, would that perhaps suggest that Minamino’s time at the club is already up?
