90Min, a football website, claims that Leeds United and Brazil''s attacker Raphinha would still welcome a move to West Ham United this summer, despite interest from Arsenal and Tottenham this summer.
Arsenal made a bid for Raphinha this week, but Leeds have rejected the decision, claiming that it did not meet the expectations of the former Roles. 90Min claims that Leeds intend to pay at least 55 million euros for the former player.
It follows two outstanding seasons for Leeds, in which he has scored 28 goals in 64 Premier League games. That is, despite Leeds'' absence from the club during the 2021-22 season.
Leeds have rejected a request from Arsenal who might return with a second offer, according to 90Min. West Ham might be Arsenal''s main rival. Raphinha is also open to joining the Hammers.
In the wake of Arsenal''s offer, Raphinha would like to leave West Ham.
The ball has to be kept on Leeds court for two years on the four-year contract Raphinha signed in 2020. They are willing to sell the Brazilian, but only if clubs reach their 55-million mark this summer.
Arsenal did not meet that with their initial offer. Would West Ham even provide a club-record amount to land the Brazilian? It''s time to say, but the Hammers'' financial power is not Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, and others.
The Hammers have only limited on Conference League football on offer. Arsenal have the Europa League, while Tottenham and Chelsea can give him Champions League game time. An intriguing story that continues to wane.
