Liverpool to swoop for Leeds United winger?

Raphinha on Liverpool radar

Liverpool are reportedly monitoring the performances of Raphinha ahead of a potential summer move for his signature.



The Brazilian joined Leeds United from Rennes in the summer and he has quickly adapted to the Premier League with four goals and four assists from 16 appearances.

His electrifying speed, dribbling skills and ability to take on defenders has blown away Reds scouts and it is claimed that they could approach to sign him in five months' time, as per Football Insider.

The Merseyside giants have been affected by multiple injuries this term, but they have mostly hampered their defensive displays over the past few months.

In the attack, they have had a fixed partnership with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah being the regular widemen with Roberto Firmino leading the line through the middle.

Diogo Jota, who is currently injured, managed to impress with nine goals after his summer move from Wolverhampton Wanderers. He has proved a quality back-up option, but they may be searching for more attacking depth.

The likes of Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Takumi Minamino have failed to impress with the chances off the bench and there is a possibility that all three could be sold in the summer.
