Leeds United winger Raphinha won’t be a Liverpool player next season, Goal’s Neil Jones says.
Any previous ‘suggestions’ that the Brazilian will make the move to Anfield are said to be wide of the mark.
Raphinha only joined Leeds last year in a £17million switch from Ligue 1 outfit Rennes.
How did Raphinha perform last season?
He enjoyed an impressive debut campaign, directly contributing to 15 goals (six goals, nine assists) in 26 starts.
His average of 2.1 chances created per 90 minutes was the seventh-best in the division.
The Reds may be in the market for a new attacker this summer to boost their depth and to limit the damage of losing Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to AFCON duty at the turn of the year.
Fan feed LFC Transfer Room relayed Jones’ claim, and here’s what supporters made of it.
