Ryan Taylor, an Express journalist on his YouTube channel, talks about Arsenal''s interest in Raphinha.
In recent weeks, the Brazilian has been linked with a number of top clubs, including Tottenham and Barcelona, but according to Goal, Arsenal are manifesting a genuine interest in the winger.
Taylor has raised the claim by stating that Arsenal is collaborating on a deal to sign Raphinha, but that they are not as focused on that agreement as they are on moves for Youri Tielemans and Gabriel Jesus.
Whats been said?
Taylor also spoke about Arsenal''s desire to pursue Raphinha.
Raphinha is a player of great interest at Arsenal, but the real draw with that is that he plays in the same position as Bukayo Saka, who is of immense concern to Arteta, according to Taylor.
Raphinha is surely the one they are looking at, Leeds will want 50 million for him, but Raphinha is the one they are working on, even if not as much as Tielemans or Gabriel Jesus.
Could miss out
Arsenal''s chances are that Raphinha may not be fired.
This is a player who has no room for suitors, and it may not be long before one of these elite clubs matches the 50 million asking price.
Tottenham is keen, Liverpool has long had an interest in the move, and Barcelona also wants to sign the attacker, so Arsenal would not be happy with the boat.
Raphinha is in the same position as Bukayo Saka, so he might not be as big a priority as the likes of Tielemans or Jesus who would fill shady gaps in the Mikel Artetas squad, but at the same time, Arsenal will likely kick themselves if they miss out on a player as capable.
