Leeds: Tottenham set to make Raphinha bid

Leeds: Tottenham set to make Raphinha bid -Leeds United News

Tottenham are set to launch a £60m bid for Leeds United winger Raphinha, according to Gianluigi Longari.

The Lowdown: Arsenal offer

The Brazil international is becoming a man in demand this summer, with a move to Barcelona now looking less likely due to their financial issues.

Arsenal submitted a formal bid on Tuesday evening for the 25-year-old, according to David Ornstein, which fell well short of the Whites’ valuation.

Phil Hay previously stated that it could take an offer of between £60m and £70m to get the winger out of Elland Road, and it looks as if Leeds are set to receive one from Spurs.

The Latest: Longari’s update

Longari took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to provide an update on Raphinha’s situation.

He stated that Tottenham ‘also’ want the Leeds winger and are ‘ready’ to submit an offer worth £60m in total (£50m + £10m in add-ons).

The Verdict: Bidding war?

Those inside Elland Road may well be resigned to losing Raphinha this summer, so they could be hoping for a bidding war between the two London clubs.

Should one materialise, a transfer could get closer to £70m, which many would see as a respectable fee for the 25-year-old. However, it looks as if the Whites may receive another offer from Spurs which matches their valuation, so it’ll be interesting to see what they decide to do next.

Where should Raphinha go?





Arsenal could well look to match Spurs’ incoming bid, and with Raphinha undecided on his future at this moment in time, it could be an intriguing few weeks.
