Vieira now signed – £50M Arsenal move made to sign 11-goal attacker that wants move

Raphinha will not be sold on the cheap

It has been claimed that Arsenal have now stepped up their attempts to sign Raphinha from Leeds now that the Fabio Vieira deal is done

After a few days of speculation and even fewer days of talks – Arsenal managed to agree a £34 million fee with Porto for one of the clubs most important and most influential players

He has been brought in to add a bit more creativity to this Arsenal side – but now that he has been officially signed up – the Gunners board have made their moves to try and wrap up a deal for Raphinha

The Brazil international joined Leeds from Ligue 1 side Rennes on a four-year deal in October 2020, contributing six goals and eight assists in 29 Premier League games in his debut campaign, while last season the player managed 11 goals and three assists in his 35 league matches

Raphinha has two years left on his contract and is not expected to sign a new deal at Elland Road – as he seeks to make that step up in the game and play for a side that is not fighting relegation every season

Barcelona also interested in Raphinha – whose agent is former Barca player Deco – but the fact that they are in financial trouble has meant that they have not been able to make an official move for the player just yet

And now reports on the Sky Sports website have claimed that Arsenal have made their first offer to try and secure a deal for Raphinha – believed to be close to that £50 million asking price that Leeds have placed on his head

IcFootballnews View…

If the reports are true and Arsenal have now entered the race to sign Raphinha, they will have to offer something special to beat the other clubs that are very much keen on the Brazilian star

They are one of the biggest clubs in the world – but are not playing Champions League football – which Raphinha wants – and are not challenging for the biggest trophies – which Raphinha wants

He is a special kind of player and will have a massive impact on that Arsenal side if he gets signed guys
