Barcelona is open to offers for Raphinha this summer.

Lamine Yamal’s spectacular rise in Barcelona’s first team has led to a decrease in Raphinha’s prominence, and Premier League clubs are closely monitoring the situation of the Brazilian winger in case the opportunity for an exit arises this upcoming summer. The fond memories of his time at Leeds United linger in the minds of several prominent clubs, and reports from England suggest that there will be a bidding war to try to acquire Raphinha.

According to Jordi Batalla of Mundo Deportivo, teams such as Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool, Newcastle, and West Ham are reportedly the most interested in securing Raphinha’s signature, as indicated by the ‘HITC’ news portal. It remains to be seen if any of them will submit a firm offer to bring the Brazilian back to England. Signed two seasons ago for a fixed fee of 58 million plus 7 million in variables, Raphinha remains one of Barcelona’s most sought-after players in the market. If the Premier League intensifies its efforts to sign him, it could bring in a substantial sum of money to the Catalan club.
