Liverpool interested in Raphinha

Raphinha’s agent has revealed Liverpool are one of a number of teams who ‘like’ the Leeds winger.


The Brazilian has been linked with the Reds since he moved to the Premier League, having impressed so far with his performances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Last season, Raphinha contributed six goals and nine assists as Leeds finished ninth, while he has already netted three times this term.

Deco, the former Barcelona and Chelsea playmaker and his agent, has now admitted Liverpool were one of a number of clubs who made their interest known.

“Raphinha became an important player in the Premier League, the club knows he has grown and things will happen naturally,” he told Globo Esporte.

“He is young, he has many challenges ahead, there are certainly several clubs that like him, and Liverpool do like him, there were approaches, but nothing official.
