Share Post

Chelsea is on their way to rivaling Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title next season with the signing of Raphinha for £65. The transfer has been heavily linked with a move to west London. With Thomas Tuchel reportedly eager to sign two wingers this summer, he could be the perfect acquisition to kickstart a new era at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea has almost reached a final agreement with Leeds United over a move for Raphinha this summer, according to an Instagram post by Fabrizio Romano. The Brazilian has been linked with a move away from the Yorkshire club, with plenty of clubs interested.

Furthermore, Raphinha has been heavily linked with an exit from Elland Road this season and, while Arsenal is said to have led in the transfer race up until yesterday, the Blues have reportedly been given the green light to reach a full agreement.

It’s emerged that long-term favourites Barcelona can’t afford the winger as things stand, and Arsenal has struggled to meet the asking price. With the race for Raphinha heading into the final.

Raphinha scored 11 goals and assisted three in the Premier League to help his side retain their top-flight status. And his progression doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, with a move to a high-profile club on the cards this summer.
