Leeds ace Raphinha next in line for West Ham once Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola deals are done

Leeds ace Raphinha is the next transfer target for West Ham, once we complete deals for Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola.

That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claim that the Hammers are considering making a bid for the 25-year-old Leeds attacker this summer.

West Ham boss David Moyes has been linked with a move to sign Raphinha fairly consistently since January according to the likes of 90 Min.

Strengthening the attacking ranks at the London Stadium will be one of Moyes’s main priorities in the summer transfer window.

Michail Antonio needs more competition up front whilst the addition of a left-footed right winger will be on Moyes’s radar after Andriy Yarmolenko’s exit from the London Stadium.

And it seems as though Raphinha is a key target for the Hammers boss…

Raphinha the next order of business for West Ham

90 Min reckon that the Hammers are close to pushing through deals to sign Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola on a free transfer.

And once those transfers are wrapped up, the East London outfit could go knocking at Elland Road for Leeds attacker Raphinha.

What an incredible signing the 25-year-old Leeds ace would be for West Ham.

He has been described as ‘unplayable’ by BBC football journalist Adam Pope.

The 25-year-old has racked up 17 goals and 12 assists in 67 games for the Whites and last season, he bagged 11 goals and three assists in 35 Premier League gams (Transfermarkt).

The Leeds ace possesses incredible technical ability, impressive pace and has an absolute wand of a left foot.

If there is any chance whatsoever of West Ham signing Raphinha from Leeds in the summer transfer window we just have to get it done.

Leeds’ £60 million asking price for the nine-capped Brazil international (90 Min) may well be a huge problem for West Ham though!
