Leeds have received a new £60million proposal for Raphinha and Arsenal are believed to be behind the offer, according to reports in Spain. The Gunners made their move for the 25-year-old forward earlier this week when their opening bid was immediately rejected by the Whites.
With Raphinha’s departure seemingly a matter of when not if, Leeds are beginning to identify potential replacements for the Brazilian.
They’ve seen an offer rejected by Porto for Otavio, who is one of several names on their radar.
PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo is another name of strong interest and he could cost up to £30m.
Arsenal appear to be fixated on landing Raphinha to bolster their wide options as negotiations with Manchester City for Gabriel Jesus continue.
Meanwhile, Tottenham do have other targets on their shortlist in case a move for Raphinha fails.
Everton forward Richarlison is a player they would like to sign while Allan Saint-Maximin is also a player admired by Paratici.
At it stands, Barcelona do not seemingly have the cash available to sign Raphinha, despite agreeing personal terms with the player.
Instead, they are focusing their efforts on clearing the deadwood within their squad as Xavi also looks to tie Ousmane Dembele down to a new contract.
