Chelsea enter race to sign Raphinha

Chelsea in for Raphinha?

Chelsea are reportedly plotting a move for Leeds United winger Raphinha at the end of the campaign.

The Brazil international has made a big impression with the Whites over the past 18 months, and he has been touted for a bigger challenge.

West Ham United recently made a €40m bid to sign him, but the Whites were clear that they won't entertain any mid-season proposals.

The Hammers are likely to return for him in the summer, but journalist Gianluigi Longari claims that the Blues are also interested.

The west London giants are currently loaded with wide attacking options, but the situation could change at the end of the season.

Christian Pulisic is unhappy with his limited game time, and could push for an exit. Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech could also leave.

Raphinha has built his reputation with his regular goal contributions for Leeds, and the Whites could command a significant fee for him.

Liverpool were also linked with his services last year, but they may cool their pursuit after landing Luis Diaz from Porto earlier today.
