Leeds forward, Raphinha is said to be targeted by three Premier League clubs.

Barcelona have agreed personal terms with the Brazilian but are yet to get a deal done with Leeds United.

Arsenal currently are negotiating with Leeds while Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have both indicated interest.

Barcelona are faced with two problems; their financial situation and the uncertainty surrounding Ousmane Dembélé’s contract extension.

Raphinha is seen by Barcelona as a suitable replacement for soon to be out of contract Dembélé.

Born in Porto Alegre, Raphinha began his career with Avai before leaving for Portugal and Vitoria Guimaraes in 2015. Three years later he joined Lisbon outfit Sporting Club de Portugal and a season into his time at the Jose Alvalade he was Rennes-bound. After a single season in France he joined Leeds – he’s become a full Brazilian international since.
