Former Premier League star Carlton Palmer believes that Raphinha will be wanted by a variety of top clubs if he keeps playing as he has been.
The Brazilian has been a shining light for Leeds United this season despite their poor beginning to the campaign.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have yet to win in the league this season and are currently marooned in the bottom three.
Was keeping Raphinha Leeds' best piece of business in the window?
Raphinha, though, has been excellent at the start of the season and is continuing to tear defences apart with his direct running and dribbling.
The Brazilian made six appearances in the top-flight and had scored three goals prior to the visit of Watford, with the Brazilian even earning a call-up to the national team as a result of his performances.
And Palmer believes that there will be clubs who want to bring him in, although he does believe that his agent may be trying to plant stories in order to drive up interest.
He said: “If you’re a player that’s playing well, clubs are always going to be talking about you and you’re always going to be linked with clubs, whether that’s newspapers, whether that’s your agent putting it out there, that’s what they do, that’s how agents get their players a move, they put it out there that he’s making his debut for Brazil and try to raise his profile to get him a move.
“That’s par for the course now. What he’s got to do is keep playing consistently well for Leeds United.”
