Leeds have four options to spend Raphinha transfer money with Arsenal deal 'very close'


Leeds are set to step up their transfer plans as Raphinha closes in on a move to Arsenal. The Brazilian looks increasingly likely to leave Elland Road for the Gunners, having played a crucial role in keeping the Whites in the Premier League last season.

His performances for Jesse Marsch’s men have seen him attract a wide variety of interest. One of those clubs is Arsenal, who Goal Spain claim are ‘very close’ to completing a move for the winger as Mikel Arteta looks to boost his attacking options..

Barcelona and Tottenham are also keen on the 25-year-old but have slipped behind Arsenal in the race to sign him. According to the report, Raphinha will not wait for Barca to stump up the money that will convince Leeds to sell.

Arsenal are ready to pay the £43million asking price, which will give Marsch a large transfer kitty to spend. Marsch will needs to replace Raphinha as well as possibly Kalvin Phillips, and here Daily Express Sport looks at four potential players they could buy.
