Liverpool must finally seal Raphinha move

Liverpool must seal a move for Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer whilst fighting off interest from other interested clubs.

What’s the latest?

According to Spanish outlet Sport, FC Barcelona are interested in signing the Brazilian and consider him top of their list for strengthening the right wing position. This is worrying news for Liverpool who were linked to the player in March after he impressed at relegation-threatened Leeds.

If the Reds are to sign him then they need to move fast before other clubs secure his services first. Despite being rated at £40.5m he could be available for as little at £25m if the club aren’t in the Premier League.

He could replace Salah

Liverpool may need a replacement for Mohamed Salah sooner than they think. The Egyptian still hasn’t agreed to sign a new contract, and with his deal expiring next year, the club won’t want to risk keeping hold of him past this summer if he continues to reject their offers.

Signing Raphinha could be the perfect solution to the problem and would allow the club to rest easy should their star man leave. The forward is only 25-years-old so has many years left in him and playing under Klopp gives him the potential to develop into a world class star.

Should Liverpool sign Raphinha?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given what the German manager did with Salah and Sadio Mane amongst others, and what he seems to be doing now with Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota, surely you would want to play for him.

Raphinha has been directly involved in 13 goals this season and is the top scorer at Elland Road. He’s been described as a “magic” by the Athletic’s Patrick Boyland and a “wizard” by FIFA. Indeed, if Leeds manage to beat the drop, his tricks will be the reason why.

Can you beat this impossible Liverpool quiz?! Starting off easy...

If you compare him to other players in his position across Europe’s top five leagues this season, you can see why some of the biggest clubs in Europe admire him. He ranks in the top 3% for progressive passes and the top 12% for key passes in a game.

Replicating those statistics as Anfield would be impressive, but he would no doubt vastly improve them by playing in a better side and under a better manager.

Liverpool need to buy for the future this summer and Raphinha can be the perfect signing to help do that.
