Raphinha to Chelsea?
Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea have reportedly joined Liverpool in the race to sign Leeds United forward Raphinha.

The Brazilian joined Leeds from Rennes last year. He has since bagged 14 goals and 10 assists from 46 Premier League appearances.

The Reds have been closely following his progress, but Sport Italia journalist Gianluigi Longari claims that the Blues are also keen.

The west London giants signed Romelu Lukaku from Inter over the summer, but they have continued to squander scoring chances.

The hierarchy are likely to address the issue next summer, and it appears Raphinha is one of the top names on their transfer shortlist.

The attacker has emphasised that he is pleased to stay with the Whites, but the board could be tempted to sell him for a significant fee.

The 25-year-old will enter the final two years of his contract next summer. Leeds are likely to hold out for at least £50m for his services.

Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner have all been linked with moves away from the Blues at the end of the season.
