Liverpool not yet through with the transfer market as they look to add more Power to the current ranks in the sqaud.
An updated report on Raphinha’s future has surfaced from a dependable source amid widespread rumours of a transfer this summer. Liverpool has long been interested in the youngster.
What’s the latest these days?
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist and insider in the transfer market, has provided an update on the status of £60 million Leeds United player Raphinha.
“Raphinha news. Raphinha’s exclusion from the team for the Australian trip has now been formally confirmed by Leeds United.
“While Leeds is in negotiations to trade him, Rapinha will train in England.
Barcelona has increased its verbal offer; Chelsea had an acceptable offering ten days prior.
FSG needs to take action right away.
If Liverpool are interested in Raphinha, FSG needs to move quickly to close the deal before Raphinha leaves for Chelsea or Barcelona this summer.
According to reports, Liverpool’s bid for the Leeds winger was turned down last month, but as the transfer window closes, this may be their final opportunity to get Raphinha.
Since joining the West Yorkshire club in 2020, the 25-year-old has been a steady and reliable offensive threat, and this season, he was a vital cog in his team’s challenging fight to stay in the Premier League.
Raphinha was the club’s leading scorer across his 35 league appearances last season, with 11 goals, three assists, and 10 big chance creations while averaging 1.9 crucial passes, 1.5 tackles, and 5.2 duels won per game.
The attacker proved that he is a highly essential player who can make a big difference in the squad by not only scoring the most goals but also one of the most crucial goals of the season against Brentford on the last day to ensure Leeds kept their top-flight status.

Even though Liverpool has often been linked with a transfer for Raphinha, interest has now diminished, especially after Mohamed Salah just extended his Anfield contract for a further three years. Moreover, it doesn’t appear possible right now to sign the Brazil international this summer.
With that said, Raphinha would undoubtedly contribute more creativity and goals to the Liverpool club, and if they could manage to clinch a deal for the player, it would be a significant acquisition that could ensure quality in goal beyond Salah’s new contract for years to come.
