Liverpool is keen on signing this Brazillian for £60 million

Liverpool Klopp

Liverpool has made a £60 million bid for Brazillian winger, Raphinha to make up for Sadio Mane’s exit this season. The Reds are scouting the market for a center to reinforce their forward line for the upcoming season.

Liverpool targeted another winger

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp appears to think that the £85 million signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica is insufficient, as he seeks to bolster his attacking options. Especially if they want to challenge Premier League champions Manchester City again next season.

Especially since Sadio Mane’s rumors of joining Bayern Munich, Liverpool’s frontline hasn’t been quite threatening. Roberto Firmino wasn’t seen on the pitch in a while whereas Luis Diaz has enjoyed a significant playtime. Uncertain about how Darwin Nunez is going to perform, the Reds are forced to undergo a change.

Leeds United’s take on Raphina

The peacocks are not willing to part ways with the former Bayern Munich star. Considering his performance on the field, Leeds will give a hard time for Liverpool in signing him.

Since moving to Elland Road from Rennes two years ago, the Brazilian winger has been a key member of the team, scoring 17 goals and assisting on 12 others, making him one of Europe’s most sought-after wingers.

Why Liverpool are desperate?

It is not just Sadio Mane who is set to leave Anfield. Divock Origi is expected to leave on a free transfer for AC Milan this summer. Another sad departure would be Takumi Minamino who was linked to other teams in the Premier League.

With Mohammed Salah and Darwin Nunez up front, Raphinha could join the party in netting the ball. Raphinha’s ability to play on both wingers would benefit us in the current situation, especially as Harvey Elliott is capable of playing in the attacking zones.

Now, Liverpool can only cross their fingers and hope the people in Elland Road will sell the Brazillian. However, the reds might have to break their policy of ‘No expensive buys’ and land Raphinha from Leeds.

Barcelona is in the race to sign Rafinha

Raphinha was extensively linked with a move to Barcelona, with trade specialist Fabrizio Romano reporting that his agent had conducted discussions with the club’s hierarchy.

The Catalan giants, on the other hand, are in terrible financial straits and are taken aback by the South American’s high £60 million asking price.

That implies Liverpool may be in an excellent position to take advantage of the situation, obtaining Raphinha’s signature and replacing Sadio Mane.

Should Raphinha join Liverpool?

Raphinha’s performance is likely to grow even more if he joins a team fighting to avoid relegation. Moreover, his hardworking mentality might make him an excellent replacement for Mane at Liverpool.

The extremely talented striker was the prominent performer in a team that narrowly avoided relegation on the penultimate day of the season, contributing 14 goals in 35 Premier League appearances, and his underlying statistics were just as impressive.

In conclusion, this could be an amazing signing for Liverpool because Raphinha can press higher. Keeping the stats aside, wouldn’t it be a treat to watch him play alongside his brother Thiago Alcantara? This will certainly be a treat for Liverpool fans.
