Raphinha bio and stats

24-year-old Brazilian winger Raphinha began his senior career in his home country with Vitória Guimarães.

He enjoyed two strong seasons there before Sporting in Portugal snapped him up for a European move.

After just one year in Portugal he was snapped up by Rennes in a club record move.

Another impressive season led to another move, this time with Leeds United snapping him up for £17m in 2020.

His debut campaign in England was an impressive one, the Brazilian netted six and assisted nine, proving to be one of Leeds’ greatest creative threats.

Liverpool want Raphinha

Speculation is mounting around the winger.

According to The Metro, Liverpool are interested in signing Raphinha this summer.

The report can be read in conjunction with an interview the player gave to UOL in Brazil recently wherein Raphinha describes Roberto Firmino as a ‘great friend’.

The player would surely be tempted should the Reds’ interest become concrete.

Liverpool is a massive club and consistently playing Champions League football.

Furthermore playing under Jürgen Klopp is a big pull for any player in the world.

However, Leeds United are under no pressure to sell anytime soon.
