The Gunners completed a £34 million deal for Fabio Vieira on Tuesday and are now looking to sign Raphinha
Arsenal will face stiff competition from Barcelona, Chelsea, and Tottenham for the 25-year-old.
However, Arsenal faces strong competition as Barcelona, Chelsea and Tottenham are also interested in the 25-year-old.
According to reports, Arsenal has submitted a formal offer for Raphinha but the bid is set to be rejected ‘rejected out of hand’ by Leeds as it falls well short of their valuation.
The report also claims that should he decide to remain in the Premier League, the Brazil international would favour a move to Chelsea.
Raphinha’s overall preference remains Barcelona but despite already agreeing personal terms with the winger, the Spanish club are restricted by their finances and are looking to offload players first.
Raphinha, who joined Leeds in a £17 million deal from Rennes in 2020, still has two years on his current contract.
It’s understood that Leeds are holding out for a £50m fee for the Brazil international.
Raphinha was Leeds’ star performer last season as his 11 goals played a key part in the club being able to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
