Report makes big claim about Leeds ace Raphinha as West Ham circle

West Ham United are ready to swoop in for Raphinha after the Brazilian told Leeds that he wants out of Elland Road.

That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claim that the 25-year-old is rejecting offers of new deals from Leeds.

And it is alleged that Leeds could now be prepared to sell the talented South American for around £60 million.

That’s an awful lot of money. Even Barcelona are reluctant to pay that kind of cash to prise Raphinha away from the West Yorkshire club (90 Min).

Perhaps £50 million would be a more reasonable price for Leeds to demand for the Brazilian. And if West Ham were to make a real splash in the transfer market in the summer window, prising the former Rennes ace away from Leeds really would be a big statement signing…

West Ham eyeing move to sign Raphinha from Leeds

90 Min claims that the Hammers could swoop in for the 25-year-old attacker after he made it clear he will not sign a new deal with the Whites.

What an incredible signing Leeds ace Raphinha would be for West Ham.

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.

It would be a huge statement signing from the Hammers. Whether we will be able to pay anywhere near the £60 million that Leeds want for the Brazilian though, is highly doubtful to say the least.
