Journalist Fabrizio Romano is one of the most reliable insiders of recent years. All major prospective transfers, in most cases, were discussed in the first place by him.
Filling out his column for Caughtoffside.com, the journalist reports that Tottenham is absolutely interested in signing Raphinha from Leeds United. But the Spurs are not the second club after Barcelona. London rivals such as Chelsea and Arsenal are in the race.
If we take Arsenal into account, they are the most active runners now, as Arteta is trying to get a new striker as quickly as possible.
According to several reports, the 25-year-old has already agreed upon personal terms with Spanish grandee Barcelona. That said, the amount of the proposed fee is very small for Leeds, and the likelihood of signing the player by another club is increasing.
Therefore, negotiations continue, and Tottenham is one of the options for the Leeds United striker.
