Asking Price For Liverpool Target And Premier League Star Lowered

Leeds United have reportedly lowered the asking price for Brazilian international Raphinha.

Previously the club was ostensibly standing firm on a fee of €60 million for the winger, but Spanish outlet Sport have reported today that that has been lowered to €50 million by Leeds United’s Director of Football Victor Orta.

Raphinha was the standout player this season in a Leeds team racked with injuries.

This prevented Barcelona from triggering the €25 million buyout which came into effect if Leeds ended up in the Championship.

Now with a significantly higher asking price, Barcelona have struggled to get the money together to complete the deal, despite the player having agreed personal terms and his open desire for a move to the Camp Nou.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal made contact with Leeds early in the summer, but ‘no further progress’ has been made due to Raphinha’s desire for a move to Spain.

Raphinha is apparently ‘squeezing’ the club to lower the asking price and is prepared to ‘publicly’ ask for a move to Catalonia. However, with Leeds maintaining their Premier League status and having Raphinha on contract until 2024, they will feel in a strong enough position not to compromise too much on a fee.

Previously, it had reported that Liverpool had ‘finished their business’ for the summer with the signing of Aberdeen full-back Calvin Ramsay, but a combination of ongoing uncertainty around Mo Salah’s contract and this tempting new price tag for Raphinha, may cause them to put their hands in their pockets.
